By now you’ve probably seen our live video demo of the Toshiba TG01 from yesterday’s launch – now available in HD, no less – and now it’s the turn of Toshiba themselves to promote what a few more months development will hopefully deliver. The two minute official video shows the custom 3D GUI in action, complete with spinning vertical panes, gestures and that nifty “shake to dismiss” feature.

Personally, while the gestures and shaking are good, I still don’t think Toshiba have done enough to convince people. It’s little things, like the pop-up “new text message” box and the threaded message conversation – both standard Windows Mobile fare – that spoil it for me.
I’m genuinely curious about your opinion on this one: have Toshiba gone far enough to mask Windows Mobile’s flaws with their GUI? I’m kicking off a conversation in the SlashGear forum about it, so hop over and let me know what you think.
