New FOMA 700i Series

NTT DoCoMo, Inc. and its eight regional subsidiaries today revealed the new 700i series of FOMA® 3G handsets. The new series comprises four slim, compact models equipped for all standard FOMA services and functions, including videophone, ChakuUta™ ring songs, ChakuMotion™ ring videos, Deco-mail™ decorative emails, music player functions, i-appli® JAVA® and Macromedia®Flash™ applications, QVGA LCD screen resolution and megapixel cameras.

The new 700i series emphasizes style and ease of use while possessing all the basic FOMA services. In contrast, the conventional FOMA 900i series is more function-oriented with high-spec features.

Standard-equipped accessories will also be sold separately: extra battery — 2,100 yen, AC adapter — 945 yen and desktop holder — 630 yen. The prices (which include tax) are for the Kanto-Koshinetsu area only.
