When you say Toshiba, you think about Japan. And when you think about Japan, in terms of mobile technology, it’s probably high-res displays that first come into your mind.
Well, Toshiba TG01, the latest handset unveiled by the Japanese company, apparently has the largest display in the history of mobile phones: a 4.1 inch one, with a WVGA (800 x 480 pixels) resolution.
The TG01 was presented today, during an event held in London. Pocket-lint has a set of images with the handset, which show it to be among the thinnest touchscreen devices ever, as it measures only 9.9 mm in thickness.
Even more, the TG01 comes with other advanced features, including HSDPA connectivity, GPS, DivX support and a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset that runs at 1GHz. The OS is Windows Mobile 6.1, improved with Toshiba’s own Tosh 3D interface.
There’s no word about the handset’s camera yet, so we don’t know its Megapixel count (but it’s probably a high one).
As Toshiba puts it, the new TG01 is set to “revolutionize the mobile entertainment world”, and, with those specs, I think it can do that indeed.

We will probably see the Toshiba TG01 at MWC 2009, when exact details about its availability and price might also be unveiled.
Update: And for those of you not satisfied with a bunch of photos, here’s a demo video of Toshiba GT01:
