Fujitsu announced the Japan availability of its new ARROWS ES IS12F smartphone, manufactured by Fujitsu Toshiba Mobile Communications. The new smartphone will be available in a steady roll out starting January 7, 2012 from KDDI Corporation and Okinawa Cellular Telephone Company. Measuring just 6.7mm thick and weighing a mere 105g, ARROWS ES IS12F pushes the limits of slim handset design as one of the world’s thinnest smartphones, while at the same time incorporating water-resistant technology. The smartphone employs a hybrid construction. Fujitsu has packed in the Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread operating system coupled with a snappy 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8655 processor.
A 4 AMOLED display with 480 × 800 resolution and 100,000:1 contrast ratio will certainly please your eyes, even when you are underwater and need to scroll through your text messages. 1GB ROM, 512MB RAM, a 5.1-megapixel CMOS camera, Bluetooth 2.1 and WiFi connectivity, DLNA support, an e-wallet function (NFC), an integrated digital TV tuner and a microSDHC memory card slot for expansion purposes rounds off the list of features. ARROWS ES IS12F is available in two colors, Ruby Red and Gloss Black.
