Fujitsu just announced a smartphone partnership with Orange Telecom, with its first handset to launch on the French carrier this June. The Stylistic S01 will run Android 4.0 and offer GSM and HSPA compatibility through Orange, and it's targeted specifically at elderly users. As such, it will include many of the same features available on Fujitsu'sRaku-Raku series of senior-friendly phones available on NTT DoCoMo. For instance, the phone will have tactile virtual buttons that mimic the experience of pushing actual hardware keys, oversized icons and audio technology that optimizes the frequency range according to the user's age. Other specs include a 1.4GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 processor, an 8.1-megapixel camera, a 0.3-MP front-facing shooter and 4GB of internal storage (expandable by microSD card). There's no pricing info yet, but we're bound to have more details after getting a hands-on look at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this coming week.
