New pink phone has liquid-cooled processor so women don't burn their delicate lady hands

Japanese manufacturer NEC recently introduced a gender-specific phone with a liquid cooled processor.

Japanese manufacturer NEC recently introduced a gender-specific mobile phone that will go on sale at the end of June. The Medias X 06E, which is available in either white or pink and comes with an attached light pendant, is being promoted for both its feminine design and the fact that it is the world's first liquid-cooled smartphone. Because NEC believes that the top priorities among female mobile consumers is owning a phone that 1) screams "this is a lady's phone!!!" and 2) won't get too hot and sear their delicate manicured lady fingers. 

The Medias X 06E's beefy Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor is cooled via a water-filled pipe that funnels heat away from the processor. The end result is a cooler-feeling smartphone. (For its part, Qualcomm has specifically touted the Snapdragon's thermal efficiency.)

I'm not entirely sure what the connection is between a cooler phone and one that would specifically appeal to women. Men can have sensitive hands too. If the technology works, it could be something people of either gender might enjoy.

The Medisas X 06E isn't the first mobile gadget specifically marketed as a feminine fashion accessory. Earlier this year, the UAE-based manufacture Eurostar made waves in the western press with their ePad Femme, a pink tablet specifically marketed toward women (or toward what some stereotypical concept of women might want anyway). Eurostar's head of marketing Mani Nair told ABC News that the tablet came with preloaded apps centered around things like recipes and Yoga so as to avoid "the hurdles of browsing or downloading applications with Android."

Women of the world, thanks to technology, you can avoid the confusion and anxiety of that impossible-to-navigate Google Play store and have more time for shopping and cooking and making babies. And soon you will no longer have to worry about your mobile device getting too hot and burning your dainty lady fingers, thus making you unfit for marriage.

You're welcome.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
