Technological Leapfrog one More Time

More in the mailbox: this time Joerg.

"NEC is coming out with a credit card-sized cellphone that is just 10mm, or four-tenths of an inch, thick. The N900 also has a built-in digital camera and will be sold initially in China with Southeast Asia and Europe to follow."

Now those who follow Bonobo will know we are just fascinated by the possibility that some parts of Asia can do some technological leapfrogging. Well here we have another example. (I don't know if any of you have noticed a bit of a blogging slowdown on my part, at least in terms of my writing input: well if you look at who's doing the economics and business op-eds you will see why. Maybe this is being done by ex-pats and Barcelona residents, but it is one of the most advanced ideas of its kind, and it is happening in China!
