NTT DoCoMo to Unveil Windows Mobile 6.0 Smartphones

NTT DoCoMo announced today the development of two smartphones equipped with the Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.0 Japanese-edition operating system.

The FOMA F1100 and FOMA HT1100 allow users to interface with PCs through proven applications such as Outlook Mobile and Internet Explorer Mobile, while the scalable plug-in environment means access to a growing number of applications. The HSDPA-capable handsets employ McAfee security scan to ensure high-speed, protected browsing of PC websites and email management. The security scan function identifies and isolates malicious data before it is downloaded.

Data entry on the F1100 and HT1100 is accomplished with a standard ten-key input layout — as such, these handsets combine smartphone capability with mobile phone convenience.

DoCoMo plans to begin marketing the handsets during the first quarter of calendar year 2008.

The FOMA F1100, developed with business users in mind, can access both FOMA and wireless LAN networks for IP telephony. DoCoMo envisions the F1100 doubling as a VoIP mobile phone using in-house WLANs equipped for DoCoMo's PASSAGE DUPLE service or the business mopera IP Centrex service, which enables outbound or internal communication via IP Centrex devices on DoCoMo networks (rather than via in-house PBX). The handset will come with a fingerprint authentication feature to ensure tight security control.

The FOMA HT1100, targeted at active business consumers who also want a handset for personal use, will feature HTC's stylish and versatile TouchFLO Touch Cube 3-dimentional interface that allows users to access and operate a variety of functions with the slide of a thumb. Audio visual files, such as YouTube Mobile content, can be enjoyed using Streaming Media software and HTC's Audio Manager music player. The handset supports DoCoMo's WORLD WING international roaming service.
