TG02 gets the OK from the FCC

Oh, hi, Toshiba TG02. It's been a while. When last we met, you were getting WiFi certification. Now you're in the good graces of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission, and there's a good chance we'll see you in person in a couple weeks at Mobile World Congress.

So what, exactly, might we see? From the FCC documents, we know the usual radio stuff is there -- Bluetooth, GPS and WiFi b/g -- plus quad-band GSM frequencies (but no 3G for the U.S.). Other than that? We'd expect it to appear with Windows Mobile 6.5.x (or 6.5.3, or 6.6, or 6.7, or whatever it ends up being called). Previous leaked specs showed a 4.1-inch WVGA screen, 3.2MP camera and the aforementioned version of WinMo. Also previously mentioned in big red letters was the word "Waterproof," which could provide an interesting twist. Stand by. [FCC via Engadget]

  • That 4.1" screen and possibly being waterproof make this a very interesting device. With quadband GSM I am assuming that means it will only be available with AT&T or Tmobile in the US? No cdma version coming?
  • My understading is that it's quadband GSM in addition to CDMA. This, with a lack of US 3G on GSM would lead me to believe it's for Verizon or Sprint with the option to unlock it to become a world phone.
  • Its a good news. Toshiba TG02 is water-resistant and it should come with a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, a 4.1 WVGA touchscreen display and a 3.2MP camera.
