NEC, not the most well-known cellphone maker around, is set to show what it says is the world's thinnest clamshell cameraphones, which it says is .08 inches thinner than the RAZR V3. Look for the N412i and N500iS at the 3GSM mobile conference in Barcelona, which will both include EDGE for high-speed Internet and real-time video streaming, as well as an MPC/AAC music player, Bluetooth and USB connectivity. Finally, you get a 1.3 megapixel camera, which I'm a little stumped on considering the rest of the phone is so high-tech. Come on NEC, you couldn't go to 2MPs?

Other NEC products on display will include a digital terrestrial TV mobile phone and 3G/W-LAN dual mobile phone, as well as a HSDPA prototype—which was jointly developed by NEC and NTT DoCoMo for NTT DoCoMo s HSDPA commercial service. Of course, that won't be up and running until the 2nd quarter of this year, but promises a maximum data download speed of 3.6Mbit/s, almost 10 times faster than our present 3G devices.
