The Fujitsu Arrows F-07D has just passed through the FCC and will likely become the next thinnest smartphone in the world when it hits the market early next year. The DROID RAZR currently boasts that title, measuring in at 7.1mm thin, but the Arrows F-07D gets even leaner with only 6.7mm in thinness.
This week we've already seen one tablet that's set to be nearly indestructible AND able to run Android in a single bound, now here's another - this one goes by the name Fujitsu Arrows LTE Tab and is able to be submerged under water completely, not just sprayed a bit in the face. It's a 10.1-inch display having 1280 x 800 pixel resolution toting Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet at the moment, and inside you'll find Tegra! Not Tegra 3, unfortunately, that honor is thus far reserved for the ASUS amongst us. UPDATE: There's been some confusion about the chip inside this device - though the video below says NVIDIA, inside this tablet is actually the lovely Texas Instruments OMAP4430, seen in quite a few excellent Androids as of late - take note!
Fujitsu has a new supercomputer that is available all around the world as of today. The supercomputer has some very serious performance with a speed capable of scaling to 23.2 petaflops. Fujitsu has developed the supercomputer from the processors down to the middleware for reliability and operability says the company.
Fujitsu is getting ready to release a new Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet that will not only boast some nice internal specs but will also be designed to protect its innards from unexpected rain showers or an occasional swim in the lake. Dubbed the Arrows Tab F-01D, the tablet comes in a unique waterproof housing.
The folks at the Au KDDI store in Nishi-Kasai in Tokyo Japan have just tweeted something that'll get your Windows Phone Mango ears ringin', that being that they're going to have the Fujitsu IS12T as early as this Thursday, August 25th, 2011. Windows Phone 7.5 Mango has been juicing up the Microsoft-loving public for some weeks now, especially after a slightly early build leaked this past week. Last we'd heard, this device was already supposed to be released to the public by this time - that did not happen, but this new release certainly appears to be legit!
Fujitsu and Toshiba have officially announced the IS12T, the cellular partnerships' first Windows Phone and the first such smartphone to run Mango. The handset, which was first demonstrated by Microsoft at a preview event earlier this month, not only has a 13.2-megapixel camera and healthy 32GB of internal storage, but is waterproof and dust-resistant.
The last time I mentioned the Fujitsu F-07C smartphone that is destined for NTT DOCOMO in Japan we were missing a few pertinent facts about the device. The big fact we were missing was when exactly the smartphone would hit the Japanese market. Fujitsu has offered that important fact for us now. The F-07C will hit Japan on July 23, which is tomorrow if you are counting.
Microsoft's Windows Phone Mango update, along with a slew of new and hopefully exciting Mango handsets, may have only two more months before their big debut. A recent Tweet from Microsoft unwittingly confirmed Mango handsets to be sent out to ImagineCup finalists in September, and now a message to Windows Phone developers further supports that release timeframe.
It was a disappointing week for Apple fans eager to pick up a new MacBook Air and OS X Lion, as both were no-shows with a launch looking to be next Thursday or Friday instead. The much anticipated Spotify music streaming service did open its doors to the US finally, although by invite-only. Google had an excellent earnings call and Microsoft revealed upcoming some Windows Phone Mango handsets. Continue after the cut for the roundup video and links.
Fujitsu's first Windows Phone handset could well be a reworked Android device, with particular similarities spotted between the smartphone briefly previewed earlier this week and the REGZA T-01C currently available on Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo. Both handsets have a distinctive camera ring design as well as three front-panel buttons with the same styling.
