Conventional technology appears unable to solve the problem of increasingly harder working handsets connecting to 4G, multitasking, streaming videos and more; recently, NEC unveiled the first water cooled smartphone, the Medias X 06E, which uses a water filled heat-pipe to draw heat away from the handset's processor...
