NEC Medias X has a water-cooled Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset - read the full textWell, this is a first NEC just unveiled a phone, the NEC Medias X 06E, which features a water-cooled Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset. Yes, you read that right. It's a head pipe system rather than one with an active water pump, but still it promises to keep those four 1.7GHz Krait cores and the Adreno...

That's what happens when the market researchers go back to the developers with the information that what consumers want most of all is a cool handset :-)

Nowadays, smartphone is getting more and more powerful, and it is taking more and more heavy tasks in our daily life, that's why many smartphone are suffering from overheating issue. Thus I think cooler is a must for every smartphone and tablet in future just like today's laptop.

The rest of Docomo's summer lineup is also impressive, like Sharp's SH06E and the Fujitsu's Arrows NX F06E

(As to why they are mostly not exported) I believe the Japanese network is somewhat different from those in the rest of the world. Also they cater quite exclusively to their market. For example, they had mobile phone based payment for years before NFC became a buzzword.

sell their stuff overseas to other countries, but only keeping them in Japan. It's not like they're small companies and can't reach out the world. Some of them got some great and interesting stuff and they never reach out to the world.

Similar reasons.

apple, samsung, huawei, ZTE, LG and even sony are makeing billions of USD every month selling phones.
sharp is losing, panasonic think it's better to make millions with micro wave ovens and NEC is thinking about to sell their mobile division to lenovo.

that is why japan is going down! global companies like sharp, panasonic and NEC are not selling their phones worldwide. so many people are sick of samsung phones. they want quality and inovation. and sharp, panasonic and NEC are still producing japan only phones. please do me a favor. just lie down and die! you don't deserve better!

Well, it goes back to our own liking bcz we're all have different tastes

Samsung has huge success with their AMOLED display for mobiles but i wonder whats wrong with LG as even they have OLED technology with them. Any reasons? IPS is good but not the best
