Though tablets tend to get the headlines at the moment, we still get the odd phone surfacing to take some of the attention. Today we have news of a smartphone that’s so smart it’s dual-booting. The Fujitsu LOOX F-07C runs both Symbian and Windows 7.
When this 4” slider device was first written about, it wasn’t sure if the details were correct, but today it was confirmed that its dual booting is official well at least according to NTT DoCoMo’s preliminary spec sheet.
The news comes from an article by Richard Lai over at Engadget which features a full spec sheet. Amongst the impressive specs of the LOOX F-07C, as well as its dual-booting software, there is 32GB eMMC disk space with the option of additional storage with microSDHC, 1GB LPDDR400 RAM and a 1.2GHz Intel Atom Processor.
The battery life seems to be the only downfall with this device, even though you are offered 600 hours standby time when in phone mode, but when in Windows 7 mode just 2 hours before being switched back to phone mode.
