The super slim Snapdragon-based Toshiba TG01 was first announced back at Mobile World Congress 2009 in February. It got a tremendous amount of attention because it was the first phone to sport the 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon platform. That, coupled with a razor-thin form factor and huge 4.1″ screen made the TG01 a true gem.
Half a year later, it launched on O2 in Germany, only to be taken off the shelves a few days after it was released because of reports of viruses found on some of the devices.
If you’ve been waiting for an unlocked version of the Windows Mobile super-phone to land like we have, wait no more. While phone retailers like eXpansys and Clove have the TG01 listed as “coming soon”, you can now snag one on eBay, though for a premium price. There are several listed, the highest having a Buy it Now price of $1350. We expect the TG01 to be available for lower prices (relatively speaking) within the next couple of months through the aforementioned shops.
