Japan, land of strong history, resilient people, and -at times- very odd things. Also, electronics. Fujitsu-Toshiba, a joint venture which isn’t long for this world, has come out with a phone that’s spec’d to the max and is also pink. The Arrows Z ISW11F (a name that’s as exciting as numbered car models) has a hefty list of specifications that makes me wish it ran WP7. It runs Gingerbread, has a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 4.3 inch 1280×720 pixel screen, a 13 MegaPixel CMOS sensor and a front facing camera of 1.3MP. It supports 1080p video, b/g/n wireless, Wi-Max , Bluetooth and is rated Tsunami-proof. I mean, it’s waterproof.
As much as I want to get into kayaking, I’d love a waterproof phone, and I wonder what the price point would be. As of now, pricing is unannounced, and the phone seems to be limited to Japan (Why can’t the US get some of these phone makers to play in our market?) which is okay, because that pink is just a little much for me.
