Orange UK exclusively launches the Toshiba TG01, free on select plans

O2 UK may have smartphones like the iPhone 3G S and the Palm Pre, but Orange has got exclusivity on one of the coolest Windows Mobile handsets out there: the Toshiba TG01.

Orange announced that it will offer the TG01 across the UK starting tomorrow, July 10, for free on select plans.

Orange’s Toshiba TG01 comes with an 8GB MicroSD card, and it’s pre-loaded with a “GI Joe” trailer, which should make good use of the phone’s 4.1 inch WVGA display and its 1GHz Snapdragon chipset.

Part of Orange’s Signature Series, Toshiba TG01 features quick links and shortcuts to Orange TV & Video, Orange Maps and Orange World.

Naturally, the 9.9mm-thin handset also has all those specs that we’ve presented many times until now: HSDPA connectivity, GPS, Wi-Fi, 3.2MP autofocus camera and so on.

    Hi
    I went to my local orange shop to sign up for the TG01, as reading the spec I thought this was going to be the phone for me!
    The sales person did not have a clue how to turn the phone on then found out she had the battery in upside down.
    Well I have found other phones unresponsive, but the TG01 takes first prize, scrolling up through menus was fine but scrolling accross the page was unresponsive, tokk several attempts to get it to work, whilst trying to scroll accross just kept opening different applications instaed of scrolling.
    Very disappointing as now I think I have to go for the Iphone instead
