Mobile devices enter thinness battle.
... IN BRIEF: In the field of digital cameras and cellphones, many thin-style devices came out in the fall and winter of 2002, and these models occupy the top ranks in the best-seller charts. The same tendency can be seen for the cellphone handsets. Although the model is quite expensive, the P504i from NTT DoCoMo, a flip-type cellphone with a depth of 16.8 mm, is ranked high on the best-seller chart. Among the handsets from Tu-Ka Group, the TK12 is the thinnest model in the group with a depth of 19 mm when folded.
... COMMENTARY: Casio's super-thin EXILIM digital camera is also selling well. When it comes to cameras, cellphones, PCs and all sorts of other gadgetry, Japanese consumers believe that thin is in.
