NEC came to market with what appears to be the world’s thinnest smartphone. It’s measured at a thickness of just 8.7mm thin and has some nice specs, to boot. According to IT Media, it outsold every device available in the Japan for the week between March 14th and March 20th.

Sure, a fast start doesn’t always mean a fast finish, but it’s a very good start for NEC who has been trying to break into European and US markets as of late. I’m sure they’re happy with the performance but it remains to be seen if they can keep it up. Here were the top 10 devices for that week, courtesy of MobileCrunch:

  1. NEC Medias
  2. iPhone 4 / 16GB
  3. Sharp IS05
  4. iPhone 4 / 32GB
  5. Samsung Galaxy S
  6. Sharp SH009
  7. Toshiba IS04
  8. Panasonic P-07B
  9. Kyocera Kantan Keitai K005
  10. Sharp IS03
