    It looks like the thin and large-screened Toshiba TG01 has gotten its own Windows Mobile 6.5 love. A software update to Windows Mobile 6.5 has been released by Toshiba for English, German, and French TG01s in the wild. Prior to the release of Windows Mobile 6.5, there were leaks showing 6.5 on the TG01 hardware. I did have a chance to preview 6.5 on the Toshiba TG01 at the Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.5 launch event in San Diego, California and the device performed well; it was zippy and the large screen showed off the new OS rather nicely. Check out the Toshiba site for details. (via: ...

    Toshiba's new T115 notebook will give many netbooks a run for their money. The new lightweight, ultra-portable notebook comes with power from its Intel® Pentium® processor SU4100 or Intel® Celeron® processor 7435 and delivers performance with a 9-hour battery and 11.6-inch display weighing in at just 3.5 pounds. The low $450 pricing of the T115 ($600 for the larger 13.3-inch T135 cousin) will make the Toshiba T115 notebook competitive against netbooks. With the convergence of notebooks getting more portable and delivering more life on a single battery charge with netbooks that are ...

    With the imminent launch of Windows Mobile in the US, an interesting piece on the Microsoft press site reveals some of the carriers and manufacturing partners for Windows Mobile 6.5 in different worldwide geographic locations. Of particular interest is the region for North America, which reveals that Windows Mobile 6.5 will be present on AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon Wireless; noticeably absent is T-Mobile, though the carrier got its version of the HTC Snap called the Dash 3G and the Touch Pro2. Both those units, in its un-branded form, will be getting an update from HTC to 6.5. On the device ...

    It looks like NTT Docomo is mulling the possibility of launching itself in the US of A as a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), which raises a few eyebrows as MVNOs traditionally have not fared well in the tough US mobile market. NTT Docomo is hoping to piggyback off of AT&T or T-Mobile for some GSM fanfare. MVNOs basically "lease" out cellular space from established carriers. Examples of MVNOs in the past include Virgin Mobile (which operated off of Sprint's network and has since been acquired by the carrier), Amp'd Mobile, and Helio. NTT Docomo US presence could signify the import of ...

    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 ...

    While we still haven't seen the Toshiba TG01 with its zippy Snapdragon processor clocking in at a lightning 1 GHz here in the United States despite FCC rumors, it seems that Toshiba is moving forward for the rest of the world with a TG02 leaked by the WiFi alliance. With most Windows Mobile makers moving towards second generation devices, Toshiba doesn't want to be left out. The TG02 will be the successor to the TG01, placing Toshiba in the second-generation league with Sony Ericsson and the XPERIA X2, HTC with the Touch Pro2, and Samsung with the Omnia II. While specs aren't clear about ...
