When we took a closer look at the NuAns NEO in January, the Japanese company wasn't sure if the Windows 10 Mobile phone was ever going to make it outside its home country. Now, it looks like NuAns has decided to attempt a wider release, because it's raising $725,000 on Kickstarter to fund NEO's global debut. According to the team's campaign, they're using the money they'll get to buy the components needed for the device to work anywhere in the world, not just in Japan.

The NEO is much chunkier than most smartphones these days, with interchangeable back halves. You can choose from various finishes, like wood, suede and even ostrich. The device itself has a five-inch 720p screen, 2GB of RAM and a 1.5GHz octacore Snapdragon 617. Plus, it's capable of running Microsoft's Continuum feature, which turns it into a tiny computer. To get one as a Kickstarter reward, you'll have to pledge at least $270, though that tier is quickly running out as of this writing.
