Toshiba TG01 Windows Mobile device rumored to launch with 1 GHz Snapdragon processor

Summary:As readers know I do enjoy using Windows Mobile devices and think they still have a lot to offer, especially for Exchange users. I just read over on The Boy Genius Report that Toshiba may be getting back into the smartphone game with the TG01 Windows Mobile device. Toshiba has made some fantastic VGA devices in the past, but never was a huge player in the Windows Mobile space because they seemed to come in and out with devices and some earlier models did have issues.

The rumored TG01 specs include a 4.1 inch WVGA display (still a resistive one), HDSPA, GPS, accelerometer, WiFi, Bluetooth, microSD card slot and DivX viewing support. It supposedly will run Windows Mobile 6.1 6.5 with IE Mobile 6. The most amazing spec though is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 1 GHz processor that should make this baby fly.

UPDATE: SlashGear has some hands-on pics and video of the TG01 from the London announcement event.
