Japanese carrier AU/KDDI just announced that the Toshiba IS02 (aka Toshiba K01) will launch in June although no pricing info was revealed. The K01 also passed the FCC certification yesterday which means that it will probably be globally available this summer. For more K01 info head over here.
The Toshiba K01 has just passed the FCC. The full sliding-qwerty brother of the TG02 and TG01 looks to be headed to AT&T or T-Mobile thanks to the 850/900/1800/1900 GSM/EDGE frequencies support (and also Europe and Asia: UMTS Bands I and VIII). The K01 also features a 4.1″ AMOLED capacitive touchscreen (the TG02 is LCD-TFT) and runs Windows Mobile 6.5.3 with SPB Mobile Shell slapped on top of it. Check out my hands-on here & here.
Here’s a couple of size comparison picture of the Toshiba TG02 & Toshiba K01 vs the HTC HD2. As you can see the HD2 is a tiny bit wider than the other two handsets but slimmer than the TG02 (the K01 beeing the thickest one of the bunch). Remember that the HD2 also has a bigger screen at 4.3″ compared to 4.1″ on the Toshiba handsets.
Toshiba officially unveiled the K01 this week at MWC. At first glance you would think that it’s just a TG02 but upon closer inspection you will find out that this thing features a 4 row sliding qwerty keyboard. Similar in design to the TG02 the Toshiba K01 will also feature an AMOLED display (instead of LCD). As you can see in the pictures, the handset is really slim. Internally it’s speced exactly like the TG02 and like its keyboard brother doesn’t feature a 3.5mm Jack and camera flash.
