It appears that Toshiba is firmly in the Windows camp as they are set to announce the release of yet another Windows Mobile based cell phone in Japan. Last year Toshiba released the “iPhone killer TG01” which was on the Windows Mobile 6.5 OS. This year Toshiba is set to release the K01 which is going to be utilizing Windows Mobile version 6.5.3. This new mobile device is set to be released in June and will have these main features:

While many of the newest mobile devices are latching on to the Android platform there are still some nice phones out there that use the Windows Mobile operating system. The K01 is going to be no different. With a list of impressive features such as the K01 will sport it is no wonder that this device is primed to be one of the most popular on the market.
By using the newest version of Windows Mobile, version 6.5.3, the K01 by Toshiba set to be one of the most powerful smartphones on the market. Along with the QWERTY keyboard and sleek design the K01 is likely to appeal to a large audience of power users that like their mobile phones to be small in stature but large in capabilities. I for one can not wait to get my hands on one of these devices when they are set to be released this June.
