The Fujitsu LOOX F-07C might not ever come to the States, but its 1.2GHz Intel Atom processor coupled with 1GB of LPDDR400 RAM are certainly worth a mention as that is just enough of a horsepower to let it dual-boot into Windows 7 and Symbian. You read it correctly – the Fujitsu LOOX F-07C is the first phone with Intel Atom and running on Windows 7, not Windows Phone 7. While you shouldn't expect desktop-like performance, the phone maker promises you could handle simple tasks and even includes a 2-year license for Microsoft Office Personal 2010. To make the spec sheet even more impressive, the rather heavy 7.7-ounce QWERTY slider packs a 4-inch LCD screen with a resolution of 600 x 1024, translating into an impressive pixel density of 297ppi. For your photographic needs, on the back you have a 5-megapixel CMOS snapper, while on the front there is a VGA camera, a welcome addition for video calls.
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.
