Last year, our friends from Toshiba had an ultra-stressed-out booth attendant defending the TG01’s absurdly small amount of RAM. What surprises do they have in stock this year?

First of all, a look at the venue – it remained largely unchanged from the last Congress. However, they now had three devices on offer:

Toshiba TG01
We covered the TG01 in detail at the last show – it was still around:

Toshiba TG02
The successor of the TG01 was available for hands-on treatment – four demo units were available from attendants:

Size-wise, not much has changed:

Its default shell was replaced by one from SPB:

Look at the video below for more information – the amount of memory on the machine was increased significantly:

Finally, a swift overview of the “slides” presented:

Toshiba K01
The K01 is Toshiba’s attempt at an XPERIA X1: it was not really available for hands-on testing:

It runs an unspecified shell:
toshiba k01 2 Mobile World Congress 2010 – Toshiba toshiba k01 3 Mobile World Congress 2010 – Toshiba

It was advertised with the following slides:
k01s 1 Mobile World Congress 2010 – Toshiba k01s 2 Mobile World Congress 2010 – Toshiba k01s 3 Mobile World Congress 2010 – Toshiba k01s 4 Mobile World Congress 2010 – Toshiba

I managed to cook up the video below and played around with the keyboard a bit – it unfortunately is completely rotten…

In the end, it looks like Toshiba remains firmly committed to Windows Mobile 6.5 for now. The units shown above are scheduled to hit the market in 6 months from now. Let’s see if they still pop up next year – I guess that they will, as WM7 is ideal for their entertainment-oriented clientele…
