Fujitsu Arrows Ultra Slim

The Arrows Ultra Slim is just 0.26 inch thick but runs Android 3.0 Gingerbread and features an AMOLED display coated in Gorilla Glass. It's also waterproof, able to withstand submersion in water and tell the tale.

Turning the Arrows Ultra Slim sideways highlights the phone's very trim profile. It's thin enough to make Samsung Galaxy S II owners take notice.

When viewed from the bottom the Arrows Ultra Slim doesn't look quite as svelte but should still be quite pocket-friendly.

Fujitsu Windows 7.5 Waterproof

Taking a page out of Nokia's playbook, Fujitsu's aptly named Windows 7.5 Waterproof runs Mango and sports a 3.7-inch screen. The handset is also waterproof and dust resistant. It comes in wild candy colors, too, like pink and yellow.

On back of the Fujitsu Windows 7.5 Waterproof is a rather large lens plus the Windows Phone logo. A Toshiba moniker is painted here as well, indicating the two companies' new partnership.

Fujitsu Arrows Waterproof Tab

Fujitsu Arrows Waterproof Tab

It's clear that the Arrows Tab isn't exactly as thin as the iPad 2 or Galaxy Tab. That might put potential buyers off this slate.

Fujitsu Arrows Waterproof Tab

Helping to keep the Arrows Tab's guts nice and dry are rubberized plugs covering all major ports. Many rugged machines take this approach; the Casio G'zOne line of phones is a good example.
