AT&T and NEC have announced a device for those needing a rugged smartphone. One perfect for the BYOD market. It's for both work and play, according to NEC, and blends Android and a Blackberry into one oddly shaped smartphone. It's a rugged and military spec smartphone, and even has those Push-to-talk features some still love.
AT&T. As we all know, BlackBerry has recently changed their hardware to try and compete in today's world, and many still love their hardware keyboards and candy-bar design. Well, if you want the best of both worlds check out the newly revealed NEC Terrain below.
Lenovo wants to jump deeper into the Android smartphone market. They have plenty of impressive phones, but we've heard they are looking to buy RIM (BlackBerry) and now new reports claim NEC could be selling their mobile division to Lenovo.
NEC have announced a brand new smartphone for NTT DoCoMo in Japan, and apparently they feel that two screens are better than one. I'm having Kyocera Echo flashbacks already, and they aren't good. NEC is set to bring their first twin 4.3-inch screens smartphone to market in Japan, and it even runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean so check it out below.
NEC has unveiled two virtually identical Android 4.0 tablets called the LifeTouch L. One version of the tablet is aimed at business users, and the other version is aimed at individuals. The difference between the two tablets appears to be software alone. Both tablets weigh 540 g and are 7.99 mm thick. Both tablets also run a 1.5 GHz dual core processor.
another Asian tablet that's releaseing already behind the times. This time around it's Japanese phone giant NEC, whose MEDIAS line is getting a tablet entry in the form of the 7-inch MEDIAS Tab N-06D. While the slate is kitted out to be a decent little tablet, it's unaccountably running Gingerbread, despite a release date nearly five months after the release of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Good grief, guys, even Motorola is starting to work on ICS updates at this point.
LG, now another initiated manufacturer is giving us the goods before the big show. Japanese OEM NEC has displayed a trio of new high-end MEDIAS phones set to make their public debut at Mobile World Congress next week, All three are relatively large devices (especially for the Japanese market) running Ice Cream Sandwich, and all of them appear to be in the prototype stage. The interest is mostly academic for us since NEC rarely makes its hardware available outside of Asia, but at least one of the phones will strike a chord with those who love to see unique form factors. Impress Watch caught a look at them in an early press event.
Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo. The 6.7mm Android smartphone will launch in the first quarter of this year.
