Toshiba TG01 partying in London on July 9

There's still no sign of the Toshiba TG01 getting any love in the United States, but one of the first Snapdragon-powered phones is sure starting to make the rounds elsewhere. Already released in Japan as the T01A, and appearing in a few other nations, an official coming out party is scheduled for July 9 in London.

We're still not totally sold on the TG01's custom interface. And we want to scream every time we see a touchscreen-only phone with icons that are smaller than a fingertip. But we're desperately wanting that 1GHz Snapdragon processor on a phone released here in the United States.
