Toshiba has released information on several upcoming product launches, including a new handset and a pair of Blu-ray devices.
The company said that the new version of its TG01 smartphone will use the Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system, and sport a 4.1in touch-screen interface and a 3.2-megapixel camera. Owners of older TG01 handsets will be offered a free update to Windows Mobile 6.5.
"Our new TG01 Windows phone is quite simply the next step in cutting-edge mobile technology," said Hidehito Koka, UK deputy managing director at Toshiba Information Systems.
"We have been thrilled with the market's response to the TG01 handset so far, and worked closely with Microsoft to launch one of the first Windows phones to the market."
Toshiba is also preparing for its first foray into Blu-ray, targeting November for the release of its BDX2000 Blu-ray player. Toshiba also said that it will offer a notebook model with an internal BD-RW drive.
The release of the products could mark a bittersweet moment for Toshiba, which waged a long and costly war against Blu-ray with its rival HD-DVD standard.
