Fujitsu LOOX F-07C is the first phone with Intel Atom, to dual-boot Windows 7 and Symbian
You might have already guessed that the weird device is aimed at the experiment-friendly Japanese market arriving on local carrier NTT DoCoMo. While the spec sheet for the device is preliminary, the battery life seems very realistic as in Windows 7 it will only last you two hours before switching back to mobile mode. With the energy-efficient Symbian, however, you’re looking at 370 minutes of talk time on a 3G network. All that goodness is coming this June or July and to own it, you’ll have to swallow the bitter pill of nearly $860. Take a look at a hands-on video of the device, courtesy of Japanese blog Akihabara news and feel welcome to share your thoughts about the crossover device in the comments below!

What is the reason of putting Windows 7 on such device with such screen?

full desktop functionality on the go is priceless to some people. no matter how good smartphones are, they are still missing some crucial things. The ability to switch back n forth is neat. Throw android on the other side instead of symbian and it will sell better. :)

Retina display it's 325ppi this phone has 297ppi still less than Retina display and more than super Amoled plus!

Great concept idea, but in the states we'd prefer WinMo 7 to Win7. The true joy of smartphones now is their essentially barebone PC's capable of running anything (with enough ROM work). Getting a device to dual boot anything stateside would be strongly greeted. I'd love to have Android and WinMo on a decent piece of hardware. I am 4 months overdue for an upgrade and in dire need of a new device and still on teh fence as to what App market I want to back for the next two years (to say nothing of which carrier). This is a great step to get two worlds to one device...lets hope a stateside carrier (or ROM developer) finds a way to do the same.

this phone is going back to the store! the phone mode is using a docomo symbian version that blocks you from using any really good apps. i-mode sux. why they did not use android was the big 1M dollar question :(
