Toshiba TG01 launches in Germany

Edging closer to the UK following the debut of the device in Japan, the Toshiba TG01 has now been launched in Germany.

It's O2 who has nabbed the operator-exclusive in Deutschland, suggesting that O2 may well offer the device here, although nothing has been confirmed for the UK.

Toshiba's TG01 is a high-end smartphone. A Windows Mobile device, it's based on the speedy Snapdragon platform and offers a 4.1-inch touchscreen display. In Germany it will be offered with Nimbuzz pre-loaded.

From a translated version of the O2's German site, it appears pricing for the TG01 is a pre-payment of 20 euros followed by a 24-month contract priced at 20 euros per month.
