Fujitsu Loox F-07C smartphone specs leak

We love it when the specs of a future device leak and a new leak has turned up today. This leak is for a new Fujitsu smartphone/UMPC and came by way of a print brochure for the device that somehow hit the open market.

If you thought it would be cool to have a Windows 7 on your smartphone, this may be the device for you.

Eking M5 UMPC gets reviewed: hot-swap battery good, price bad
