Puma Toshiba Samsung Beam & more
Toshiba showed off its TG02 smartphone in Barcelona. This thin, Windows Mobile 6.5.3 device features the latest SnapDragon processor and a nifty, trick user interface. The device itself is decent looking, but doesn't do enough to differentiate from the crowded field of slab-style touch phones.
It's large, but very thin. The thinness means fewer hardware features, though. There's no 3.5mm headset jack, for example, nor a flash.
The capacitive buttons below the screen were a bit unresponsive, but that could have been as much from the user interface layer that Toshiba created for the device.

About that UI...
The main menu screens to look all that different from any other phone, but what Toshiba has done is to wrap them up in a neat 3D carousel that users can interact with via the accelerometer. Tilting the TG02 tilts and rotates the 3D carousel. I'm not sure it's the most practical thing in the world, but it sure looks nice.
Check out the video below to see it in action.
