Fujitsu the Latest to Jump On Android Smartphone BandwagonS

Fujitsu, former iPad trademark owner and soft-spoken tech manufacturer, is jumping into the Android smartphone game. It will be the company's first smartphone since it stopped selling the multifaceted devices back in 2007.

The scant details we know so far peg this as a Japan-only phone, targeted at the 55 million or so subscribers who reside under the NTT Doccomo umbrella. Expected to hit that country sometime next year, the mystery smartphone has neither name nor price, but will probably benefit in some small way or another from Fujitsu's pending cellphone operations merger with Toshiba.
