NTT DoCoMo has recently introduced 19 new phones for the Japanese market. One of them is particularly interesting. The F-04B (part of the carrier's PRIME series) comes with a 12.1Mpix camera and a secondary VGA cam, and it supports microSD cards up to 16GB. But that's not what makes it unique. The F-04B is the world's first handset with a separable, two-module body.
NTT DoCoMo has launched a net Smart F-04A clamshell cell phone in Japan. Like many other Japanese handsets it's waterproof, only I can't really tell why. I guess making underwater cals is a common practice in Japan.
Jokes aside, the price wasn't mentioned yet, but we do know what the Smart F-04A has to offer:
NTT DoCoMo has announced a new Fujitsu phone for the Japanece market, the PRIME F-03A. It should be released on January 25th for a yet unknown price. Features include support for Japan's e-payment system, i-mode and TV streaming, as well as:
Introducing the DoCoMo Prime F-01A, a new all-in-one phone from Fujitsu. The phone is a real "mustbuy" considering all those hi-tech features packed into a genuine Japanese-style (square, that is) casing.Here's what it offers:
3.5” WVGA touchscreen;
5.2Mpix Camera with AF and Face Detection;
VGA video @ 30fps (MP4);
microSD card slot (up to 8GB);
IPX5 and IPX7 specification (works underwater at a depth of 1m for 30min);
NTT DoCoMo and KTF announced they're planning to release a new Android-powered handset next year in Japan. The device is not ready yet, but when it's released, they say it will cost cheaper than its western counterparts.
Who knows, but it seems that at this rate Google's OS will soon conquer the whole world, just like the iPhone.
FCC has approved a new Japanese cameraphone form Sharp, the SH-01A. It features an 8Mpix CCD sensor, a 28-mm wide angle lens, Dolby Pro Logic II, and MicroSD slot for storing media. The phone will be available first from NTT DoCoMo in Japan, and sometime later in the U.S.
Now that's a phone with a truly Japanese look, the new Sony Ericsson SO-01A for NTT DoCoMo. Apparently this model won't leave the borders of Japan, but I sure would like to play with it a bit. Anyway, at the moment we know almost nothing about this handset, but according to the source it does have Google Translator and a full touchscreen. We would also add 3G support to the list.
