The Timeline No specific release date has yet been set for the Toshiba TG01; however, the device is expected to become available in some places by this coming summer. Prices are also not yet confirmed. Rumors place the TG01 within the same ballpark of the iPhone 3G, though we’ll have to wait and see if Toshiba tries to out-price Apple to entice users over. The other uncertainty: carriers. Expect the usual exclusive deals, but we may not know which networks will get the device until the Mobile World Congress or later. So is it an iPhone killer? Or just another hotly hyped attempt that will pale next to the thus-far-untouchable god of all smartphones? Certainly, there are still too many unknown factors to make any real predictions. One thing's for sure, though: The TG01 is definitely catching the market's eye -- and even if they're not worried, I suspect the folks at Apple are watching very closely.
