First Look at Toshiba's TG01 Multimedia Smartphone

New phone will sport Toshiba's TV technology, a touch screen, and a sleek design

The Software The TG01 will run on Microsoft's Windows Mobile 6.1 with a new graphical interface. The "shake" function is expected to have usages spread throughout the system -- in addition to the aforementioned answer and disconnect feature, for example, the TG01 is expected to also allow you to shake to return to the device’s home screen. Perhaps most notably for Apple, the TG01 will have integrated Flash support -- something the iPhone has consistently taken a beating for excluding. The inclusion of Flash in the TG01 means you'll be able to navigate to any Flash-based Web site and watch videos that might not be available in a non-Flash interface. Toshiba's TG01 will come with built-in access to Google, YouTube, and Facebook. As for applications, Toshiba is supposedly working with developers to create games specific to the device to supplement the Windows Mobile programs already available.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
