NEC to launch the slimmest camera phone in the market yet
NEC Corporation announced that it has succeeded in creating a card-shaped, camera-equipped mobile phone, which it will launch on the China market, one of the world's largest and most competitive mobile markets, in February, 2004.

NEC's own cutting-edge technology has enabled an ultra-compact mobile phone boasting measurements of 85mm (width) X 54mm (height) X 8.6mm (depth), and a light weight of 70g (about 2.5 oz.). This mobile-internet product supports GSM/GPRS, and is equipped with a 1.8 inch (120160 dot) TFT color display and a digital camera (300,000 pixels). Loaded with 40-polyphonic ring tones, and installed with camera functions including a mobile light, and consecutive shooting ability, this phone is used in conjunction with an earphone and a mic.

"This world's smallest and slimmest mobile phone is a symbolic flag-ship product representing NEC's leading position in mobile terminal technology," said Yoshiharu Tamura, General Manager of Mobile Terminals Division, NEC Corp. "NEC will continue to offer new, innovative mobile terminal solutions, which offer compact shape, and the latest product technologies, allowing users use of a variety of mobile phones for different situations."

Along with a slim case, this product also boasts a slim structure that was created through optimised space layout of stackable function modules (circuit board, display, key-sheet, battery, and embedded antenna). High stiffness was enabled by a compound structure of metal and resin. NEC also developed new thin printed circuit board by decreasing thickness by approximately 40%. In addition, equipment reliability is heightened through stress reduction realized by our original process technology. The core LSI employs very small CSP (Chip Size Package), and the most advanced high-density surface mounting technology.

NEC intends to further advance this technology toward broader application use in areas such as mobile terminals, PDA and micro PC.
