Fujitsu has revealed the Arrow ES IS12F, the world's thinnest smartphone, at the CES Unveiled event in Las Vegas.
The device, which is only 6.7 MM thick, is only available in Japan at the moment - but may soon launch in the US and European markets. The company failed to give specific details about future launch dates, however.
The Arrow ES IS12F smartphone runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread and has a 1.4 Ghz single core Qualcomm processor. Weighing 105 grams, the device also has Corning Gorilla Glass and a 0.2mm thick 4-inch AMOLED WVGA (800 x 480 pixels) screen. The Arrow, part of a series that also includes a tablet device, has a 5MP camera at its back, reportsEngadget.
The most interesting thing about the device is that it is completely waterproof. To prove this, Fujitsu had the device submerged in a bowl of water for every one to see.
The smartphone is available in Japan from the country's largest wireless carrier DoCoMo. Fujitsu representatives said the company plans to launch the product in other markets soon. This is a very exciting product for those looking for a durable, waterproof phone that is easy to travel with.
