It seems that folks living in the US might soon be able to get hold of the Medias N-04C that has already arrived in Japan courtesy of NEC Casio Mobile. This will be an Android-powered device that has been touted to be the “world’s slimmest smartphone”, measuring a mere 7.7mm thin – clearly beating out the Galaxy S II. Not only that, it is light on your pockets as well at 105 grams, although we’re not too sure how much of a weight it would put on your bank account once you decide to bring it home.
So far, it has done particularly well in Japan, having moved around half a million units to date. With NEC now ready to deliver the Medias N-04C to the US, it is said that Americans will be getting their hands on a modified version of the phone, although it remains to be seen whether the US will also get the already released N-06C in Japan later down the road.
Verizon Wireless seems to be the most likely candidate to offer the N-04C, although there is word of other carriers offering the phone as well. Hardware specifications include a 4″ LCD touchscreen display at 480 x 854 resolution, the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system, a 5.1-megapixel CMOS camera, a microSDHC memory card slot and Wi-Fi connectivity among others.
