K01: Toshiba to roll out super-slim Windows Mobile slider phone

Whereas Sharp decided to cautiously embrace Android, Toshiba still seems to be firmly in the Windows camp. After releasing the “iPhone killer TG01” on WinMo 6.5 last year, the company announced another Windows Mobile-based cell phone in Japan today (Toshiba is one of Microsoft’s official “Mobile Partners”, after all).

Toshiba’s K01 will be marketed as the ISO02 in Japan [JP] and is a Windows 6.5.3 phone, to be more exact.

These are the main features:

  • Snapdragon processor (1GHz)
  • 4.1-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen (480×800 resolution)
  • 3G CDMA module
  • slider QWERTY keyboard
  • RAM 384MB
  • ROM 512MB
  • 3.2MP CMOS camera
  • IEEE802.11b/g Wifi
  • Bluetooth 2.0+EDR
  • weight: 158g
  • size: 66×123×12.9mm (Toshiba says it’s the slimmest QWERTY slider out there)

The K01 was showcased earlier this year at the Mobile World Congress, cleared the FCC yesterday and is announced in Japan for June. We’ve listed up early features as early as one year ago.
