NEC’s Medias Phablet Review / Hands On [MWC 2013]

We randomly visited some booth and this was the best among all of them. We got hold of a dual screen phablet from NEC and they call it MEDIAS W N-05E. Its from the “docomo NEXT series” of smartphones.

This phablet is a  two-screen design which helps you convert a big phone into small one making it portable and open up to a large screen display of 5.6-inch.  When the phablet is closed it becomes a compact, 4.3-inch display smartphone.

NEC Phablet Dual Screen

This phone supports high-speed LTE “Xi”communications. The browser is enabled to support both the screens. So you can really view a wide page extending to the second screen. It is also useful when you want to watch a wide angle picture or take a look at the google maps.

MEDIAS W N-05E is running on a Snapdragon S4 1.5 ghz, 1GB RAM. It has 16GB built in storage and can be extended using the microSD storage. It packs in 2100mAh battery which should run longer, and an 8MPX camera.

The unique feature about the camera is that when the tablet is folded, it becomes the back camera, but if you open, it becomes the front camera. Thus makes it an ultimate companion for making video calls as you can view callers video on a wide 5.6 inch screen.

The resolution of both the screen combined is 960 X 1080 but with only  one screen it shrinks to 960 by 450. The phone is only 1 MM thick.
