NTT DoCoMo Unveils Secure 3G FOMA F903iBSC Handset for Business Use
NTT DoCoMo F903iBSC

NTT DoCoMo announced today that this month they will begin marketing the 3G FOMA F903iBSC business-use handset to enable companies to address security issues such as information leaks and non-work-related use of corporate phones.

To avoid information leakage, the handset's camera, external memory, USB and infrared ports, and the Osaifu-Keitai e-wallet service are not available. In addition, the phonebook is limited to 101 entries.

Functions such as phonebook, e-mail, scheduler, data box, call records and screen memos can be reset remotely by DoCoMo at the request of the customer if a handset is lost. This service requires an optional subscription, and will be made available from April.

Security is further enhanced by a tool that automatically locks all functions when the handset is shut. Unlocking can be handled with biometric fingerprint authorization or a password.

To focus the handset on business use, the F903iBSC does not contain a music player or preinstalled i-appli Java-based applications.

DoCoMo will market the handset in Japan from March 19.
