10 phones to challenge the iPhone 3GS

Toshiba tg01

Toshiba TG01

Snapdragon Toshiba phone is most powerful ever

Boasting a 4.1-inch touchscreen, WVGA resolution and yet still under a centimetre thick, it certainly looks the part - despite the colourful user interface.

The phone uses Qualcomm's 1GHz Snapdragon chip – which should make it the fastest toushcreen phone on the market by a street.

It uses a re-skinned Windows Mobile 6.1 Operating System, which of course brings Office support and IE Mobile 6

Our expert says: "The eternal problem for the companies using Windows Mobile 6.1 is trying to hide the ugliness. HTC's TouchFLO is a really great effort, but what Toshiba has done with its 'stripes' home screen is really interesting too.

"The 4-inch screen might be too big for some people, but in terms of sheer productivity it's beyond par. Not only that, but it's the fastest out there with the Snapdragon 1 GHz processor, so it could be a dark horse in this year's 'top phone' race."
