Toshiba TG01 on Orange now official!

Well we we’re pretty sure it was about to happen but today it became official – the Toshiba TG01 will be coming to Orange here in the UK! Excellent news I’m sure you’ll agree and it’s great to see that Orange are taking more of these cutting edge handsets such as the HTC Hero and recently the HTC Touch Pro2.

So here’s the official release for you. Unfortunately I was not able to get along to the launch even in London but hope to have more news, and ulitmately a review, for you soon.


Orange brings the portable cinematic experience to mobile users in the UK with the exclusive launch of the Toshiba TG01

  • Orange to range the Toshiba TG01 exclusively across its own retail channels in the UK
  • The TG01 will be available for free on selected pay monthly price plans from 10th July
  • The TG01 is the first handset in the UK to feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 1GHz processor

Orange today announced it will be exclusively ranging the Toshiba TG01 in the UK across all its own retail channels in time for the weekend. Offering the widest high-definition touch-screen available on a mobile, the TG01 provides users with a cinematic viewing experience on a handheld device and is testament to Orange UK’s focus on ranging innovative multimedia handsets so consumers can make the most from the latest shifts in modern technology. It follows the announcement earlier in the week that Orange will also be launching the world’s first Touchscreen Watch phone in the UK.

A powerful and feature-rich mobile entertainment device, the TG01 offers uses the largest widescreen handset yet and comes with an exclusive pre-loaded film trailer for the forthcoming summer blockbuster “GI Joe”. What’s more, the 4.1” W-VGA screen is the perfect size for watching TV, videos and looking at pictures in high quality.

The TG01 also bridges the gap between notebook and mobile by featuring the latest in chipset technology and is the first handset to be sold in the UK which has a 1GHz processing power, offering fast mobile internet connectivity for a richer multimedia experience. This also enables users to make the most out of their phone, whether it be for watching video, updating social network pages or just browsing the web – just like they do on their PC.

The handset is the first from Toshiba to be part of Orange’s successful Signature Series and comes with quick links so users can easily get to grips with the handset’s great functionality. Shortcuts to the best of Orange TV & Video (which recommends great video content such as Sky 24/7 Football), Orange Maps (Orange’s own sat nav service which utilises the TG01’s inbuilt AGPS), and Orange World (Orange’s own mobile internet portal), come integrated on the device’s user interface.
