Japan seems to really like Windows 7-powered tablets: this time, it’s Toshiba, which has announced [JP] the so-called WT301/D for the local market. Just like so many Windows tablets, this model is specifically designed for use in enterprises.

  • “next-generation” Atom processor
  • 64GB SSD
  • 2GB memory
  • Bluetooth 3.0+HS
  • Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11b/g/n
  • USB slot, microHDMI interface
  • 1.3MP cam, 0.3MP inner cam
  • stereo speakers

Toshiba plans to launch the tablet on the Japanese market next month (the price hasn’t been fixed yet).

ARROWS Kiss F-03D: Fujitsu Japan Rolls Out “Women-Only” Android Handset

arrows kiss feat-01al

It’s not the first cell phone that has been designed specifically for women, but it’s certainly one of the most interesting, as far as features and specs are concerned. Fujitsu’s so-called ARROWS Kiss F-03D for the Japanese market runs on Android 2.3, is targeted at women aged between 20 and 30, and comes with “elegant and glimmering jewelry design”.

The area around the “gem-cut” buttons on the front starts lighting up in one of 23 illumination patterns when users receive a call or message. Fujitsu also provides a small stylus that’s supposed to make it easier to write Japanese characters. The Kiss F-03D is waterproof (and ready for use in the bathtub), too.

Users can choose between a set of different fonts, icons, and wallpapers. They can decorate pictures with a “special photo enhancement function”, control their body posture with a special app, or optimize their sleep with the Sukkiri Alarm app (which wakes them up when sleep is detected to be at its lightest point).

Spec-wise, buyers get a 3.7-inch TFT screen with 480 × 800 resolution, a single-core CPU with 1.5Ghz, 1GB RAM, an 8MP outer camera, a 1.3MP inner camera, a microSDHC slot, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, infrared, a digital TV tuner, e-wallet function, wireless charging (Qi) support, etc.

The Kiss F-03D goes on sale in Japan on Friday with an open price model.

Sony Ericsson Reveals “Live With Walkman” Android Smartphone

Live-with-Walkman

Sony Ericsson knows how to do Facebook. A social network can’t be the only selling point of the phone, like on the HTC Status — there has to be something else. For gamers, SE brought Facebook into the mix with the Xperia Play. Now, music fans are getting the same love. This morning, SE unveiled the Live With Walkman smartphone featuring a button for instant music access and deep Facebook integration.

Though SE has only called it “deep Facebook integration,” the capabilities of the software lead me to believe that this is nearly identical to the Facebook Inside Xperia platform, just without the Xperia bit. You can still connect direct to Facebook from within the photo gallery, music player, calendar and phonebook. Past that, there’s a dedicated hardware button that connects the user to Sony’s Qriocity music platform, offering instant access to music and videos.

The only hangup is that this little guy doesn’t quite have the specs to compete with the big boys: 3.2-inch TFT display, single-core 1GHz processor, 5-megapixel auto-focus camera that shoots in 720p, a front-facing camera, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread. If you’re all about having a bad mamma jamma phone, the new offering from SE probably won’t cut it. Then again, if you primarily use your phone to listen to music and keep up with Facebook, the Live with Walkman may be just what you’re looking for.

Pricing is as-yet unannounced but we expect to see the Live with Walkman hit shelves in October.
