NTT DoCoMo’s Fujitsu F-07C now available, marries Windows 7 and Symbian at last
Calling the Fujitsu LOOX F-07C an eccentric device is not a stretch — in fact, it’s one of the more unique smartphones we’ve seen in a fair length of time. Now available on NTT DoCoMo, the dual-booting hybrid is touted as “the world’s smallest PC,” since it can switch between Windows 7 and Symbian and offers a few netbook-worthy specs. It runs off a 1.2GHz Intel Atom Z600 CPU (downclocked by 50 percent, unfortunately), a 32GB eMMC SSD, and 1GB LPDDR400 RAM, packed underneath a 4-inch SVGA (1024 x 600) LCD display. You can also take advantage of the 5-megapixel camera on the back, paired up with a VGA front-facing shooter. Things get a little strange when it comes to battery life, however; while you get up to 600 hours of standby time and 370 minutes of talk time in mobile phone mode, it gets sucked dry after just two hours when using Windows 7. If your smartphone just doesn’t have enough brainpower to handle your daily grind, here’s an alternative.
