Fujitsu debuts Windows 7 smartphone

No, we're not talking about Windows Phone 7, we're talking about a smartphone running the full-fledged Windows 7 operating system.

Many have toyed with the idea of a smartphone as a mini computer, but none have taken it as literally as the F-O7C. The F-07C is a computer cleverly disguised as a smartphone complete with an Intel Atom processor.

Inside the device there's a 1.2GHz Intel Atom Z600 processor underclocked to 600MHz, 1GB of LPDDR400 memory, and 32GB eMMC solid-state storage.

But is this a computer or a smartphone?

With the ability to switch between the phone's regular operating system (Symbian) and Windows 7, I'm going to go with a smartphone with computer comparable capabilities. Seems like it would be a good tool if you're stuck in a bind without your laptop or need to do a presentation on-the-fly.

The x86 processor and operating system allow the F-07C to load any software capable of running on a Windows PC. Internet Explorer 9, Adobe Flash, Microsoft Silverlight and a two-year copy of Microsoft Office 2010 come standard with the device.

The four-inch 1024x600 LCD slides open so users can access a QWERTY keyboard and trackball. Users can also attach any Windows-capable accessory to the phone or hook the phone up to a TV with a HDMI cable. It measures in at 4.9 inches x 2.4 inches x .78 inches.

Of course, running Windows 7 on a smartphone comes at a price, as the battery will only last around two hours. LAME.

The F-O7C is slated to launch in Japan by the end of the month in a partnership with NTT DOCOMO. No word yet when or if the phone will roll out in the U.S.
