Toshiba TG01 lands exclusively on Orange


Orange has finally silenced rumours that Toshiba's new TG01 smartphone was to be available exclusively on its network in the UK.

The mobile giant will make the new Windows Mobile-based handset available from tomorrow - for free on selected monthly tariffs.

The TG01 will be the first handset in the UK to feature Qualcomm's new 1GHz Snapdragon processor. It also boasts a 4.1" touchscreen in addition to a range of multimedia features.

"We're really pleased to have teamed up with Toshiba to bring the TG01 exclusively to the UK," said Francois Mathieu, director of devices for Orange UK, in a statement.

"We believe the TG01 is a prime example of manufacturer innovation, and is a device that is at the very top of its game which will allow users to make the most from their mobile experience,"
