Toshiba is set to bring us another Android. This time, they are bringing a keyboard-enabled Regza-branded phone which they say will be targeted to those who like to text and post on social networks. It has a 1.4GHz Snapdragon processor, an 8 megapixel camera, a 4 inch display and more. This one’s headed to KDDI in Japan and is unlikely to see a release un Europe or North America. I must admit, though – that keyboard looks plenty nice and I wouldn’t mind having that as an option on any of our carriers. Video’s above. [DigInfo]
