Fujitsu Arrows “world’s thinnest smartphone” pops along to CES 2012

Fujitsu Arrows “world’s thinnest smartphone” pops along to CES 2012Motorola 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.

Thats it, the world has gone mad.

I will literally throw money at the first company that brings out a good speced mobile phone that rather than racing down the usual "slim as possible!!!!!!!!" track ignored the trend and made a phone at a perfectly reasonable 1cm deep, and instead stuck a HUGE battery on it so the phone would last days and days rather than the usual 30-40 seconds you spend staring at it in awe and lust....

/Rant over

Totally agree, Stelph.
The joke is: the thinner those devices are, the more theyu 'demand' to be put in a sturdy case. And you end up with a chubby, underpowered idiot.
