Fujitsu to steal the Tegra 3 show at MWC announcing its waterproof Arrows handset with 13MP camera

Fujitsu to steal the Tegra 3 show at MWC announcing its waterproof Arrows handset with 13MP camera
The Fujitsu Arrows prototype that was strutting its Tegra 3 stuff at CES last month is allegedly going to indeed be announced at MWC next week, or at least something very similar to it. 

The reason for our excitement about this one is not only that it sports a dust- and waterproof body, as most Japanese high-ends, but also a 4.6" HD display and 13.1MP camera with the mindnumbing 25600 ISO setting. With these specs the quad-core Fujitsu is likely to give whatever "premium" handset Panasonic is planning a run for its money.

The other niceties are that the handset will eventually ship directly with Android ICS, sport biometric security and long battery life is explicitly mentioned in the laundry list of features, possibly hinting at a large battery inside.

We can't wait, since Fujitsu is aiming to use the MWC expo as a springboard for an European crusade, where the goal is to corner double digit market share within a few years, but the company also said that it is evaluating how to jump into the stormy waters of the US smartphone market as well. Well, with phones like the Arrows, the product speaks for itself, but let's wait to see what exactly will get announced and at what price.

easy anwser cause if more phone were water proof who would pay for insurance ? anwser would be close to no body, currently people who have insurance has either drop a phone in water or cracked their screen or known somebody who had that happen to their phone. More or less its about companys making money

Holy smoke, what's left for the Galaxy S3 now? Is this phone Japan only? If not, could be that i'll pick my next phone between Sony, Panasonic, or Fujitsu :P

I don't think it will come to the US any time soon. Most likely scenario is picking up a Euro international version. Beast of a phone!

I could really use this phone, if not the Sony Xperia S and may be the ION (both dual-cores), Panasonic and the rumored HTC One X (which I still prefer to call by the concept names, Edge or Endeavor)... Besides Sony's attractive two dual-core smartphones, Fujitsu, Panasonic and HTC's greatly hyped and rumored quad-cores are going to be a competition for me. But we will have to see if they are the phones mentioned spec-wise during the MWC... Can't wait! =)

You need to shut up with the Samsung criticism on every PA article.
