You know, I’m really starting to dig the designs coming out of Willcom. This latest iteration is quite the departure from the minimalist approach taken with the R9 though, resulting in a substantially more “clunky” feel. The square keys protrude quite a bit from the face of the Willcom WX321J, but I’m willing to overlook that chunkiness as this handset is pretty beefy in terms of features. This Willcom number is being touted as an all-in-one mobile phone: it’ll handle RSS feeds, tackle POP/SMTP email, and sync up to your Outlook-equipped computer via Intellisync.
To add to the clunkiness, they didn’t opt for an internal antenna design, plunking a short stubby signal grabber instead. Other features include W-OAM at 204kbps, NetFront 3.4, microSD memory expansion, QVGA display, and a 1.3 megapixel camera. The WX321J also supports Word, Excel, and PDF files. Oh, and if you’re wondering about that yellow thing in the middle, that’s a biometric fingerprint reader. Too bad it’s Japan-only.
