Fujitsu Arrows F-07D measured 0.26" at the FCC, proves Android catwalk can lead to anorexia

Fujitsu Arrows F-07D measured 0.26
Move over, Motorola DROID RAZR, you've been served. The Fujitsu Arrows F-07D just strutted its stuff around the FCC catwalk, revealing a 0.26" (6.7mm) thin body, thus nailing the "world's thinnest smartphone" title.

The Japanese were evidently annoyed when the DROID RAZR was claiming it, despite the camera bulge at the top. The Fujitsu Arrows F-07D has its own thickest parts, where it is 8.5mm, and that's still less than stalwarts like the iPhone 4S, which is 9.3mm throughout.

It is one of the phones in the newest NTT DoCoMo crop, sports 4" OLED screen, 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon, 5MP camera and is, of course, waterproof, as has become customary in Japan.

wait so less than half of the phone is 0.26" thick and they get to call the thinnest? well whatever the case the Razr is still the marvel here because it accomplished the feat with a 4G LTE radio.

agreed. .4-.6" IMO is the perfect range.

> The Japanese were evidently annoyed when the DROID RAZR was claiming it, despite the camera bulge at the top 8.5 mm thick -- that is how phones should be judged. Not at it's thinnest part; but at its thickest part. I wonder why Toshiba went with a 5 MP shooter given Apple was able to squeeze in a 8 MP shooter and an extra len no less.

Well the iPhone is a bigger phone... that's probably how they were able to "squeeze" in a larger camera.

1. The iPhone 4S is just about as thick as the its predecesor and so Apple did squeeze in a 8 MP and an additional lens. 2. Camera/camcorders are really small these days. You will surprise by the thickness of some of these devices. 8.5 mm thick is plenty of room for an 8 MP shooter.

Reminds me of a captivate - I suppose they will never make phones for Americans, huh?
