Outline

The underlying concept "Style that lasts" motivates a design that blends new materials and touch technology with cutting-edge features that stand the test of time. Light and impact-proof state-of-the-art new materials such as carbon fiber and tempered glass have been used, while a 5 megapixel camera, a 2.8" high resolution LCD, touch screen, and other advanced features are brought together to provide a high level of consumer satisfaction.

Evaluation

There was a sustainable consideration behind the neat modeling. Tempered glass with multi-layer coating was adopted for the front LCD to protect from scratch damage and the carbon fiber covering was adopted to protect the back surface. This consideration for longevity was highly appreciated. Moreover, the installation of touch operations suited for intuitive operations including page turning and music sound volume adjustment operation was highly praised. A well-balanced, appearance with only minimal functions and the natural feeling of the material is agreeable. (Chiaki Murata)
