KDDI and Fujitsu have just launched a powerful new Android smartphone which is scheduled to be released in Japan in early July. The device – known as the Fujitsu Arrows Z ISW13F – is a very capable device and that would likely be a big hit if it were to reach either the European or North American market.
Aside from the 1.5GHz processor, the Android 4.0 phone features a big 4.6-inch 720p (1280 x 720) LCD display, 16GB of onboard storage (expandable up to 48GB with a microSD card), and its rear-facing camera can take 13.1-megapixel stills and 1080p video. Adding to the list, the phone features Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI output through its MicroUSB port, dustproofing, and waterproofing — both from spraying water in any direction at up to 4.35 psi as well as complete immersion to a meter or more. And being a Japanese device it’s also equipped with infrared, Osaifu Keitai (wallet phone) for FeliCa-based payments, and a 1seg TV tuner.
We all know HTC, we all know Samsung, and we all know Motorola, LG, and Sony. But what about the lesser known manufacturers? They are hungry for your love (dollars) too. Out of the offerings you’ve seen from ZTE, Huawei, Meizu, Panasonic and Fujitsu – which one would you say stands tall?
