Going way back to April 2009, when the sky was the limit for Windows Mobile and 6.5 was our great hope, Toshiba was just ramping up their plans for devices. We had the monstrous (at the time) TG01 on the scene (though no U.S. 3G on board) and then came word of the TG02 and TG03.

While the TG02 eventually saw the light of day (for a refresh, see our hands on with video), the TG03 disappeared from the cosmos. Until today.

According to theunwired.net it looks like the TG03 has received that sweet Euro certification from the Global Certification Forum (GCF), clearing it for near-release status. It was signed off with quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as triband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA at 800/850/2100 MHz, so you know what that means...

The 2009 specs would still be solid for today, if they are unchanged: a 4.1 inch touchscreen, Snapdragon processor, a 5-megapixel camera, 5.1 (simulated) audio pumped out of two speakers, and "video box" mode to easily get video off the device. Then again, we'd find it difficult to believe that some of that wasn't upgraded in the last year and half.

But the million dollar question is: what OS? Unfortunately, we just don't know. While the original TG03 was a WM6.5 device, it makes sense with the timing that this would be Toshiba's push into WP7 territory--even if they're not named as a launch partner. Then again, that little damn droid bot has been stealing our thunder...
