the device measures 5.11 inches tall by 2 inches wide and under a half inch thick (130 x 52 x 12.3 mm), at a weight of 3.7 ounces (160 grams). its 3.2-inch screen features 854 x 480 resolution; and the device is loaded wtih an 8-megapixel CMOS camera and USB and microSDHC ports. it is bluetooth, wifi, and infrared -compatible with an e-wallet function and digital TV tuner.

the redesigned iida interface offers increased customizability and mimics the phone’s styling with a contemporary grid layout for menus and applications.

the device is expected in japan by february 2012.

  • nice!! I like them. also ummm ttt, the pictures are bigger than the phones, probably to show detail.
    they’re not that big in real life. 😀

    seriously though 5 x 2 x 0.5 inches is actually really close in total size to the iphone 4s: taller but thinner.

  • It looks way too HUGE.

    ttt
