NEC reports that they have succeeded in creating a card-shaped, camera-equipped mobile phone, which will launch on the Asian market later this month. The new handset boasts measurements of 85mm x 54mm x 8.6mm, and only 70g. This mobile-internet product supports GSM/GPRS, and is equipped with a 1.8 inch (120×160) TFT colour display and a digital camera (300,000 pixels). Loaded with 40-polyphonic ring tones, and installed with camera functions including a mobile light, and consecutive shooting ability etc, this phone is used in conjunction with an earphone and a mike.
“This world’s smallest and slimmest mobile phone is a symbolic flag-ship product representing NEC’s leading position in mobile terminal technology,” said Yoshiharu Tamura, General Manager of Mobile Terminals Division, NEC Corp. “NEC will continue to offer new, innovative mobile terminal solutions, which offer compact shape, and the latest product technologies, allowing users use of a variety of mobile phones for different situations.”
