Slowly, but surely the Toshiba TG01 is becoming available through carriers in different countries. By 9 July you could add the UK to the list of lucky countries that have access to the first Snapdragon handset following Spain, Japan and Germany.
The Toshiba TG01 is already available in Spain through Movistar, and as we reported a while back, O2 Germany snatched an exclusive deal to offer the phone in Germany. It should have launched a few days ago but O2's online store still has it as "Coming soon". The prices are up though - 150 euro with a contract and 500 euro commitment-free.
The UK will also get on the TG01 action in just a week, though there's no mention of which carrier will get it. Pricing is unknown too, but we guess we'll learn more on the 9 July.
We've covered the Toshiba TG01's overwhelming features time and again; you can read our preliminary thoughts here. We'll just mention the three most striking features, we can't resist - 1GHz CPU, 4.1" WVGA touchscreen, 9.9 mm thick.

Opening apps faster IS indeed depending on the CPU and the TG01 is unbeliveable fast comnpared to devices like the Touch HD (I got both so I really know what I am talking about).
