Toshiba shows Regza phone with Android, 12MP cam

Toshiba has just introduced its first Android smartphone, carrying the Regza brand usually reserved for the company's TV sets. The relatively high-end T-01C has a four-inch, 480x854 resolution screen and skews to the high end elsewhere with a 12.2-megapixel camera with 720p video recording, a 1Seg TV tuner and a waterproof body. The phone supports HSPA-based 3G, and otherwise has built-in GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1.

To make watching TV easier, a landscape stand is built-in. Japan's virtually standard FeliCa wireless payment system is integrated into the handset as well. Android 2.1 will be preloaded, though an upgrade to 2.2 will purportedly arrive in the spring. Toshiba hasn't addressed the imminent launch of Android 2.3.

The phone will arrive for sale in Japan between December and January.
