Japanese network operator NTT Docomo has unveiled three new handsets for its service, one of which it claims is the world’s thinnest 3G .
The three new available are the NEC Medias N-04C, the Sony Xperia SO-01C, and the Optimus Pad L-06C. It’s the Medias we are interested in here, though. At 7.7mm thick or stall we say thin. Compared to the now thick iPhone 4 at 9.3mm thick making the Medias roughly 18% thinner. Plus a 4″ display (480 x 854 resolution) and only weighs 105 grams (iPhone 4 is 137 grams)...
And speaking of thin... Asus has unveiled the U36 which is being marketed as the world’s thinnest notebook to use a standard Intel i5 processor. Till now ultra-thin notebooks have used low voltage processors to allow for a decent battery life. Somehow using a standard i5 CPU, Asus claims that their new notebook has 11 hours of battery life.
The laptop weighs 1.44kgs and is made of 19mm thick lightweight magnesium alloy with a nanometer coating which helps the notebook repel dirt, water and fingerprints.
