Hands off Fujutsu's quad core phone

Written by Nick Farell



Don't even look at it


Fujutsu has been having a look but don't touch approach to its quad-core mobile phone at CES.

You would think something like this would be something that Fujutsu would be proud of, but it does seem to be having the same policy as Nigel in Spinal Tap had for his favourite guitar. You can look but don't touch... actually don't look at it too hard.

The device doesn’t yet have a name, and no one was allowed to touch it, but we do have a spec sheet: 1.2 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3, 4.6 inch 720p resolution screen, 13 megapixel camera, and 4G LTE connectivity.

According to Droid Life, the phone was locked in a glass case to stop the riff-raff from picking it up and trying it. The phone was hooked up via HDMI to a TV though, running Riptide and looked pretty good. Futjitsu said that people might be able to touch it at the Mobile World Congress next month

Did you just copy/paste "Fujutsu"? To have a typo is one thing, (I expect it at Fudzilla), bad enough it's in the title . However, when you've misspelled the company's name (Fujitsu) every single time it's mentioned in the article screams c/p.

As to the phone, quad core is a bit much at the moment. Power issues aside, I can't think of too much I use my phone for that requires a 4core CPU.

There could be a number of reasons simply because it is Tegra-based

a) It is either fake (wood screws)
b) It is either too hot because nVidia couldn't get the thermals right
c) It is either extremely heavy for similar reasons as b)
d) Fujitsu is too ashamed of it because it is using Tegra instead of a proper ARM-based SoC

Quad-core for tegra.
1 core for cpu.
1 core for gpu.
1 core for temperature detection.
1 core for shutdown if temperature > 60C.
