If you thought the Samsung Galaxy S II was the smallest phone out there, we have a surprise for you. Making an appearance State-side, the NEC Media N-04C will turn heads as the phone most-likely to be lost because of it's thin profile. Coming in at a microscopic 1/3 of an inch thick and 3 oz. in weight, I really wouldn't advise using this thing as a paper weight.
Though the phone was rolled out last February by manufacture NEC Casio Mobile in Japan (where else?), this will mark the first run of the phone in a US market. A recent addition to the smartphone race, NEC Casio Mobile was founded in 2009 from a NEC, Casio and Hitachi merger and the company has seen initial success in their mobile venture.
Details are hard to come by regarding carrier/ availability at the moment but the phone should sport a 4- inch touch screen, 480 x 854 resolution and a 5.1 Mp camera. Tough how they get that in such a small case is beyond me. A release date hasn't been nailed down but as soon as it brakes expect an update from AndroidPIT.
