The Toshiba TG01 1GHz Snapdragon handset has appeared on the Orange UK website ahead of next week’s 9th June press conference which is presumably to announce just these kinds of details.
One wonders quite why mobile operators do this? It’s too common, too hard a mistake to actually make to leak the carrier of a handset early and it certainly helps to cover Orange’s blushes over publicly losing the exclusive rights to the Palm Pre to O2.
With any luck, this is just the tonic for the quiet network to get back on par with the bigger players – provided the TG01 turns out to be all it’s cracked up to be. I’m sure it will, provided WinMob doesn’t ruin the show.
