While the TG01 is kind of a beast on the hardware front, the software is sorely lacking. 4.1″ WVGA touchscreen? Yes please. HSDPA, WiFi, and a 1GHZ Snapdragon process? Heck yes! Windows Mobile 6.1? Er, we’ll pass. But fear not, current and potential TG01 owners: Toshiba’s fixing that shortcoming as best they can.
Toshiba has just announced that the original TG01 is set to evolve into the “TG01 Windows Phone” – an inch-for-inch and spec-for-spec match of the original TG01, but running Windows Mobile 6.5 rather than 6.1. The new TG01s will begin shipping on October 6th. And for everyone who already owns one? You’ll be getting a free software upgrade, which will be made available here.
Now that that’s out of the way, Toshiba, how about crackin’ out an Android option? Everyone loves alternatives.
