Windows Mobile 6.5 isn't exactly an exciting OS. It's been panned by reviewers and customers alike for being too little, too late. That said, the release of 6.5 could still herald some very cool things; like Toshiba's new line of WinMo 6.5 smartphones. According to Akihabara News (via Gizmodo) at least one of these slick new Toshiba beauties could be released before the end of 2009.

Both new smartphones, the K01 and the K02, were displayed at CEATEC recently. The K01 is a thin, glossy QWERTY slider with a 4.1" capacitive touchscreen, a 1 GHz processor, and a 3.2 MP camera. The K02 is a clamshell phone with a 3.5" resistive touchscreen, and a second dual screen that might display a touchscreen keyboard.

Based on leaked roadmaps, the K01 could hit this year, while the K02 will be released sometime early next year. Toshiba also has another product in development; the L01, which is a 7" tablet that doubles as a digital photo frame. It could also arrive by the end of the year. Unfortunately, nothing is known about what sort of hardware it will pack.

I've got to say one thing for Toshiba; they know how to design a gorgeous smartphone. The K02 definitely has my eye. A dual-touchscreen smartphone could be a really fantastic device. With any luck, we'll get to see how it works in the flesh before too many months pass.
