Commercial for the Touchwood SH-08C from NTT DoCoMo is cooler than the phone it advertises

The only time I ever watch commercials and actually look forward to them is during the Super Bowl. I like the commercials that are funny or otherwise interesting for one reason or another.

NEC MEDIAS E-04C super-slim Android gets hands-on treatment

Almost as wafer-thin as the proverbial wafer-thin mint, NEC's MEDIAS E-04C has been well pawed in the wild at its launch event in Japan. Impress carefully fondled the 4-inch Android smartphone, finding its 7.7mm girth to be slightly spoiled by a bulging camera module, but when said-bulge includes a 5.1-megapixel camera, we won't complain too much.

7.7mm NEC MEDIAS E-04C Android smartphone bests chubby Arc and Galaxy S II

How skinny is too skinny? NEC obviously reckons Android smartphones aren't quite slender enough, since the new NEC MEDIAS E-04C is a waifish 7.7mm at its slimmest point. Packing Android 2.2 Froyo and, according to Draft life with blog, headed to Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo later this month, the MEDIAS E-04C usurps Samsung's Galaxy S II, a comparatively tubby 8.49mm, and the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc, a bloated, corpulent 8.9mm.

Buggy Sharp DoCoMo LYNX SH-10B Android MID sales frozen; only 7k bought in 2 months

Looks like NTT DoCoMo aren't having much luck with Sharp's LYNX SH-10B Android MID.  The company froze sales of the QWERTY handheld a week ago, after discovering a security loophole that could allow malicious software to harvest text, then settled on an update that apparently fixed the flaw and would let the carrier put the SH-10B back on sale from tomorrow.  Now that's changed again, with the discovery of a further bug in the MID.
