Toshiba TS32, TX80 phones
Toshiba has launched two new cellphones in Hong Kong, the TS32 and the TX80, says The Register. The former is a business-oriented candybar phone, measuring only 0.4 inches thick, but likewise has limited features, such as Bluetooth 1.2 and a 1.3-megapixel camera. Active talk-time is just 2.5 hours, and onboard memory is restricted to 5.5MB, though a microSD slot can provide up to 1GB of extra storage. More relevant to the public may be the TX80 (pictured), a clamshell phone with 40MB of memory and anywhere between three (3G) and five (GSM) hours of talk-time. Video calls are limited to VGA resolution, but stills can be taken with the phone's full 3.2 megapixels. The TS32 will ship in black-grey, black-purple and and silver-and-gold colors, while the the TX80 will come in black, white and pink. Prices for both models are unpublished.
