The P901i can also be used without any decorative jackets, known as "Non-Jacket Style." The P901i comes equipped with a "Jacket Coordinator" as an iAppli allowing users to download and set-up menu icons and standby displays to suit different Custom Jackets.

The FOMA P901i is equipped with an external 2.02 mega pixel νMAICOVICON camera, producing sharper pictures at a lower power consumption. The inner CMOS camera contains 100,000 pixels. Still images can be shown in various Panasonic AV devices through the miniSDTM card slot.

The FOMA P901i allows continuous talk for 140 minutes and on videophone mode for 90 minutes. When folded, it has a dimension of approx. 104 (height) × 49 (width) × 22 (thickness) mm.
