We currently have a plethora of ways to get data to our smart phones. We can use QR codes, messages and email, and even NFC. At this year’s CEATEC, Fujitsu has demonstrated a new way to get data from the world to our smart phones. This method uses our televisions.
It’s much the same premise as a QR code. When a TV commercial prompts you to, you open up your camera and point it at the screen. The TV advertisement then transmits a coupon or a website where you can learn more details. Where you point your camera doesn’t matter, although it is recommended you get your whole screen in the viewfinder.
Once the data is obtained, the phone should just open up [...]
Most of today’s smartphone manufacturers think of only a couple of things when prepping a display. The brightness and viewing angles are probably the main focus, size seems to matter a whole lot lately, as well as color reproduction and pixel density.
Those are all very important things for day-to-day smartphone users. But how about thinking a little bit outside the box and really innovating for a change? Well, fear not, ladies and gents, because there are two companies out there that seem to be thinking things one step ahead of everybody else.
NTT DoCoMo, the most important mobile operator in Japan, and Fujitsu, the world’s third-largest IT services provider, [...]
KDDI and Fujitsu have just launched a powerful new Android smartphone which is scheduled to be released in Japan in early July. The device – known as the Fujitsu Arrows Z ISW13F – is a very capable device and that would likely be a big hit if it were to reach either the European or North American market. Why do we say so? What more can you ask for from an Android device with 1.5GHz Tegra 3 Quad Core processor, 13MP camera, and a waterproof and dust-proof design? Give it a catchy name, a nice $199 subsidized price, and you have a device that can go toe to toe with HTC’s One X aka EVO 4G LTE, and Samsung’s S3. Sadly though, it’s never likely to be [...]
What a great way to make our day! We all love cutting-edge Android devices, particularly those that possess amazing specs. And today, we got just that!
Hitting the Mobile World Congress today is Fujitsu, the Japanese technology company that is currently the third largest IT services provider in the world. Fujitsu immediately caught our attention when it displayed a prototype smartphone running Android 4.0 ICS.Pocket-lint
But soon enough we realized that Android 4.0 is just the icing on the cake. We later found out that Fujitsu’s prototype is actually powered by a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor. The smartphone is just one of of the [...]
Over the last decade, Japanese smartphone makers have effectively ignored the rest of the world, preferring to focus on their internal market. As a result, Panasonic, NEC, Sharp, and the other big Japanese smartphone makers are almost unknown to the Western public. But things are changing on the shores of the Far East.
Sony, the only manufacturer that kept the flag up for Japan, has recently divorced from its unhappy marriage with Ericsson and has promised to focus more on U.S. and Europe. Panasonic just announced the Eluga, a slimline 4.3-inch beast running Android that will be introduced next week, at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. And now it seems that Fujitsu [...]
In the past, Fujitsu said they did not have any plans of launching mobile phones outside Asia. However, this seems to change now with today’s report that the Japanese brand is planning to start selling their Android and Windows Phone based devices in Europe. Fujitsu will be debuting this at the Mobile World Congress on Sunday. After its Europe launch, the company will also be selling their devices to the US market by this year; if not in 2013.
As of this writing, we still don’t know if Fujitsu will be concentrating on selling Android or Windows Phone devices to the UK and US markets. This bit of information will have to be anticipated at the MWC. But for the moment, [...]
