The Toshiba K01 was originally announced at MWC this year, with many readers interested in this device’s presence. It seems the device did not waste any time coming to our shores, and going to visit the big man on campus.
Today Engadget manage to find this device lurking around the FCCâ€™s system. They had a look, and the specs of the device can speak for itself.
It is not truly a US device, without US 3G, many might not buy in. The device does have the usual 2G bands of 850/900/1800/1900 GSM/EDGE and of course also the usual Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth. Hopefully the US will get a little love with a US 3G device(hopefully T-mobile 3G). If not an updated device, a new version, for example a K01-U or something similar to what they did with the TG01, that has US T-mobile 3G :D.
Unlike its older brother, this device is capacitive. Toshiba did not make the same mistake twice of having a large screen device not be capacitive, but they did make a great exchange to AMOLED, which has its ups and downs.
The last feature I most talk about is this sexy thing under the device it calls a keyboard. I am freaking out for this device’s keyboard. I mean just look at it. The keyboard looks touchable(unlike the Droids) and looks very similar to the Touch Pro2â€™s in size and shape.
I do not know what Toshiba has been doing in their laps(certainly not updates their older deviceâ€¦ wait, minor updates thought,) but this is a great accomplishment. I am actually pondering if I should get this or the HD2, because I cannot live without my keyboard, andÂ this device looks like it canâ€™t either with its thin body, fast processor, big screen and everything to make it sell(except WP7S of course, but hey, maybe Mr Codon can help me out there, since the device only has 3 buttons).
What do you guys thing, will this be your next device? Do you like it more than the HD2? If you could would you buy this for Wen? Comment below and include your height.. just for fun.
