(Picture from Engadget)

With dozens of QWERTY devices on the market already, what makes this one special you ask?

The WILLCOM D4 (aka Sharp-WS016SH), once released in Japan in mid June, will be the smallest QWERTY device capable of running Windows Vista Home Premium SP1.

Here’s a description from Engadget‘ “Measuring just 188 x 84 x 25.9mm and 470grams, all that power / battery conservation / smallness of the Willcom D4 comes courtesy of a 1.3-GHz Atom processor pumping away beneath that sliding / tilting 5-inch, 262k color, LED-backlit 1,024 x 600 touchscreen hiding a 64-key QWERTY keyboard.” ‘

In addition to that the D4 comes with 1Gb of memory, 1.8″ 40GB HDD, 2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, microSD slot, HD audio codec with mono-speaker, and Opera browser riding atop Japanese PHS  or 802.11b/g WiFi. If you’re in Japan you’ll also be able to wathc tv via 1-Seg which is a common feature in cellphones in Japan now.
