Whew, time flies when you're having fun, eh, Hitachi? Less than four months after showing your W43H clamshell for Japan's patron saint of CDMA, KDDI au, you're rolling out its successor -- the aptly-named W43H II. Like the original, the sequel features a 1seg tuner for digital TV reception with recording, 2.6-inch QVGA display, and a 2 megapixel cam. Other hot specs include LISMO music downloading, FeliCa, and a choice of two colors: "glass black" and "ice pink." Look for the W43H II to hit the streets of Japan this week.
