Motorola was keen to shout about the RAZR being the world’s thinnest smartphone when it touched down in October last year, but just one month later Japanese manufacturer Fujitsu came along and spoiled the party.
While the Motorola RAZR is borderline anorexic at 7.1mm, the Fujitsu Arrows is thinner still at just 6.7mm.
We’re not huge fans of super-thin and light smartphones to be honest. Give us something to hold on to any day. But if you’re concerned about the Fujitsu Arrows being dainty, think again.
As demonstrated at CES 2012 in Las Vegas, the Fujitsu Arrows is in fact waterproof. It also boasts a 4in Gorilla Glass display.
Other Fujitsu Arrows specs include a 5MP camera, 1.4GHz single-core processor, 512MB of RAM and 1GB internal storage. Operating system duties are handled by Gingerbread (Android 2.3).
The Fujitsu Arrows is only available in Japan at the moment, and while there are definite plans to introduce the super-slim smartphone in other territories, Fujitsu wouldn’t - or perhaps simply couldn't - reveal specifics at CES.
