Toshiba today launched the new TG01 smartphone, which it has announced in February. The phone ships in Japan on NTT DoCoMo network and it will be called T-01A. Toshiba is the first company to use Qualcomm’s ultrafast 1GHz Snapdragon chipset, while most smartphones available today still use up to 600MHz ARM’s processor.

The other hardware features on the phone include 4.1-inch WVGA touchscreen, HSDPA support, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and microSD card slot. The super thin phone features a custom UI built to mask Windows Mobile 6.1 behind it. The phone is available now in Japan and will ship to other parts of the world later this year.
