This article presents information on the phone developed by NEC, which has an integral camera and is the size of a credit card. Actually at 8.5 millimeter thick it is not as slim as a credit card and at 70 grams it is somewhat heavier. NEC had to reduce its state-of-the-art printed circuit board thickness by 40 percent to get it to fit. This mobile network and Internet product supports global systems for mobile communication, and is equipped with a 1.8 inch colour display and a digital camera with 300,000 pixels for mobile picture quality. The camera also has a mobile light and consecutive shooting ability. To use the phone customers need the wired earphone and microphone, stretching again the credit card size claim but taking nothing from the significance of this development.
