If there is one word that is probably safe to use when discussing the NTT DoCoMo Sigmarion III, 'unusual' is likely it.

Made by NEC but released exclusively by Japanese telecommunications giant NTT DoCoMo, the device was exclusive to NTT and had no follow-up anywhere in the world under any brand. More so the device was one of the first to include TFT screen technology and native SD card reading technology. Furthermore it was one of a very small number of devices that was ever released to market with Windows CE .net 4.1 on-board, making it a truly unlikely contender in the popularity stakes. Yet surprisingly, despite its Japanese only origins, the Sigmarion III is a highly regarded and very popular H/PC device (if you can get hold of one!).

It has been a while since we've run a Flashback review here on HPC:Factor and to mark the occasion Mikey Pizano takes the oddity that is the NTT DoCoMo Sigmarion III for a trip down memory lane as he reviews the device in his first article on HPC:Factor.

As ever, read the review and have your say in the comments and on the forum.
