NEC’s MGX prototype is a super-slim Android netbook

What do we have here? This isn't the first netbook we've seen running Android, but it is one of the most Interesting. Japanese manufacturer NEC has revealed the MGX, an Android-powered device in the "pocket translator" form factor popular across Asia. The device is in the early stages of development - you can see it's running Android 1.5 or 1.6 in the photo below.

NTT DoCoMo gets new NEC WP N-06C Medias phone

NTT DoCoMo has announced that it has landed a new Medias phone from NEC for its network that hits stores today for purchase. The phone went up for pre-sale yesterday apparently. We have seen other NEC medias phones in the past that were really thin and interesting like the Medius E-04C back in March. The new Medias phone is the WP N-06C and it is very thin.

NEC MEDIAS E-04C 7.7MM Android Phone [Hands-On in Japan] [EXCLUSIVE]

Our main homie Ewdi is up in his crib over in Japan [don't worry, he's completely safe], and he found one single store that had a working model (aka not just a dummy model) of the MEDIAS E-04C 7.7MM Android phone. That's one thin phone, I must say. Ewdi notes that this model is running Android 2.2.2 Froyo, and is not as snappy as he thought it would be - and trust me when I say Ewdi's had his hands on his fair share of smartphones. Our man in Japan with the goods!

NEC LT-W Dual-Screen Android Tablet [Hands-On Demo]

In Barcelona at World Mobile Congress 2011, the Android was strong, man. So many people are interested in Android, in all its forms, that you never knew what you might find in the stands running on Google's mobile OS. One of the more interesting items we found (more in theory than in practice) was the following dual-screen Android tablet presented by NEC. Operating with several apps, widgets, so forth all aimed directly at schools, this NEC LT-W tablet made sure that our hope for future generations of students making full use of the technology of the day was completely renewed.

MEDIAS E-04C 7.7MM Android Phone Further Detailed

A couple days ago we saw a sort of sneak peek at a new phone from NEC called MEDIAS E-04C. It's a 7.7MM-thick Android smartphone and although it appears that it'll only be showing up in Japan, it's just too cute not to look at a bit closer. Now we've got a slew of additional details including the preorder date, which is March 4, 2011, and further confirmation that this phone is indeed 7.7MM-thin. This phone will officially be released on March 15, 2011, and it'll be running Android 2.2 Froyo.

NEC MEDIAS E-04C 7.7mm-thick Android smartphone headed to Japan

So far, NEC's Android devices have looked pretty clunky: you can hardly accuse the Touchnote or Smartia of being alluring in their design. However, all that looks set to change with the NEC MEDIAS N-04C, a 7.7mm thick Android 2.2 Froyo smartphone expected, according to Draft Life with Blog, to hit Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo on February 24. The super-slim smartphone hasn't been fully detailed, but it will have a 4-inch display, NFC and 1-Seg digital TV tuner, and be available in black and white. At 7.7mm it's thinner than the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc (which is 8.49mm thick) and the Arc doesn't even have NFC. No word on international launch plans, but NEC would be crazy not to take the MEDIAS E-04C abroad. [via Akihabara]

HTC Slim concept: a work of art

HTC announced a new phone for NEC today at MWC called the HTC Slim and it really looks to be a beautiful work of art. With a curved design and thin waistlin, the Slim runs on Android, with what looks like a Sense overlay. The three main buttons that are within easy reach of a single thumb thanks to it's tapered bottom end.

NEC dual-screen Android tablet & Android netbook incoming

NEC will launch a dual-touchscreen version of their LifeTouch/Smartia tablet at CES 2011 next month, though full details of the presumably clamshell device are currently unknown. According to PC World, the tablet - which will also carry the LifeTouch brand - has a pair of 7-inch touchscreens which can show different information simultaneously. There's also confirmed WiFi, Bluetooth and 3G connectivity, but the version of Android NEC expects to use is unclear. The company will also be showing an Android-based netbook. Note, the image here is just a mockup. [via SlashGear]

NEC Smartia tablet is consumer version of Cloud Communicator [Video]

NEC's Cloud Communicator tablet has jumped over to the company's consumer division, rebranded as the NEC Smartia and set to go on sale in Japan from December 6. The specifications for the 7-inch slate are unchanged, so you get an 800 x 480 resistive touchscreen, 600MHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor and Android 2.1, all for 42,800 yen ($510) from NEC's comically-named BIGLOBE ISP. There's also GPS, WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and a 3-megapixel webcam. NEC also thrown on their own app store, Andronavi. NEC apparently has a 1GHz update in the works, complete with Android 2.2 and 3.0 updates, but there's no timescale for their release. [youtube VWbSLfTrV_U] [via NetbookNews]
