Uh Oh: The Toshiba TG01 is diseased


If you’re part of the very, very, very small segment of Crunch readers who happens to live in Germany, and you’re an O2 customer, and you bought a TG01 – look out! Your new toy might make your computer feel a bit woozy inside.

They don’t have the how or why’s just yet, but O2 in Germany has verified that at least some of the TG01s they’ve sold were packed with a virus on the microSD card. Sales have been nixed, and anyone who bought the phone should give O2 Germany a ring.

We’ll update you as more details come in, but we’d expect O2 to stay pretty mum on this one. We can only assume that one of their computers at the processing plants got infected, and the virus was coded to throw itself onto any microSD card it detected. Hopefully the as-of-yet undetermined side effects aren’t too nasty.
