NEC debuts 2012 MWC lineup ahead of schedule

MWC is one of those special times of the year when the media and tech nerds can come and drool together over beautiful soon-to-be-iconic devices. It’s also one of those times that seems to take forever to get here. Fortunately, we get scraps of information in the interim to make the waiting more tolerable. Such is the case with NEC’s MWC lineup, a trio of rather sexy Android phones that are sure to please a wide range of palettes. As you can see in the picture above, they’re currently billing these as:

  • The “Best Cloud UX Device” (a two 4.3″ screen folding phone)
  • “Large Screen in One Hand” (a 5″ screen behemoth)
  • “The Most Stylish” (a 4.3″ screen device with a focus on…well…style).

There are no announced carriers or anything of the sort, as it seems these are for more of a showcase than anything else. It’s also worth mentioning that NEC has decided to go all out with Ice Cream Sandwich on all of the devices, forgoing the physical navigation buttons for the on-screen software buttons. Only time will tell if these pretty little strumpets will be successful, but they certainly look attractive. It’ll be good to hopefully see some full specs next week.

What do you think of this trio of devices? Is there something else that you’re really looking forward to at MWC? Let us know in the comments!
