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.

The first model, the F700i, will be introduced on February 10, 2005 through all DoCoMo sales channels. The price of the handset will be open (unfixed). 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.

The main features of the 700i series include:

Memory cards stored with music files can be inserted into 700i phones for playback.

ChakuUta and ChakuMotion

Deco-mail
