The most recent NEC device to reach the U.S was the Terrain, announced by AT&T just last month.

It also includes a 5-megapixel main camera and VGA user-facing camera. The device ships with 8GB of internal storage, and support for microSD memory cards up to 32GB.

It can be purchased through AT&T's business sales channels.
