NTT DoCoMo to Start Marketing Japanese Support for BlackBerry

Jul 17, 2007

NTT DoCoMo announced today that it will begin marketing Research In Motion's BlackBerry 8707h with Japanese-language support on July 23.

Customers using the BlackBerry 8707h will benefit from new features — Japanese input for e-mails (including text prediction) and other personal information management (PIM) applications and a Japanese screen menu — that enhance already existing capabilities such as reading Japanese e-mails and browsing Japanese websites. These developments accommodate the needs of customers intending to deploy the smartphone in a Japanese-language environment.

The launch of Japanese-language support will also include localization of BlackBerry Enterprise Server and BlackBerry Desktop Manager. BlackBerry Enterprise Server software tightly integrates with IBM Lotus Domino and Microsoft Exchange, and enables secure, push-based wireless e-mail and access to other corporate data. The BlackBerry Desktop Manager allows data synchronization between a BlackBerry smartphone and a personal computer.

The Blackberry 8707h device and service will be distributed exclusively through DoCoMo's corporate business division.

DoCoMo will exhibit the Blackberry 8707h at Wireless Japan 2007, which takes place at Tokyo Big Sight from July 18 to 20.
