Remember that 6.7mm thin handset we talked about a month ago? Well, it’s ready for showtime, as Japanese wireless provider KDDI has just announced a release date for its Fujitsu Arrows ES IS12F. The ES IS12F also totes Android 2.3 Gingerbread and host of standard features, such as one-segment broadcasts, mobile wallet (Osaifu Keitai), and infrared communications. Consumers will be able to get their hands on the water-resistant, 6.7-millimeter, 105-gram handset in Japan on January 7th.
This device isn’t an élite power phone, but it carries some decent specs, including:
- 4-inch AMOLED display with 480 x 800 pixel resolution
- 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor
- 5-megapixel camera
- 512MB of RAM, 1GB of internal Storage
- WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, CDAM and GSM support
- 1,400mAh battery
- Gorilla Glass
The bad thing about these out of market phones is not much is known when it comes to an American or European release — in this case — I don’t expect the Arrows ES IS12F to hit the United States shoreline anytime soon. Still, if you’re actually interested in buying this device, it’s going to set you back 57,800 yen (about $750) off contract on Kakaku.com. The IS12F is available in two colors: Ruby red and gloss black.
