Toshiba 911T with Oakley

Cellphone provider Softbank today unveiled its Spring 2007 phones, and in doing so also marked the introduction of a new Toshiba media phone. The 911T slider centers around a relatively sharp 3-inch, 480x480 widescreen useful for watching mobile TV on Japan's 1Seg network and sharing the same underpinnings as the company's Regza LCD televisions. A 3.2-megapixel camera is present, as with some of the newest phones; however, Toshiba says, the 911T adds anti-shake correction to stabilize often blurry cameraphone images. Storage for media is supplied through 1GB of internal flash as well as a microSD card slot, either of which can be used to record TV shows for later viewing. Special attention is also given to Internet access. Unlike most phones, a full HTML browser is preloaded for viewing pages intact and takes advantage of the full speed of Softbank's 3.6Mbps HSDPA broadband connection.

The phone will be available through Softbank in black, bronze, silver, and white hues as of March. Each will be accompanied by a set of Oakley's O ROKR Bluetooth sunglasses, providing stereo sound for calls and music. Pricing is unavailable. A photo showing the four colors of the 911T is available after the jump. [via MobileWhack]
