TOKYO, JAPAN, November 15, 2004 ---NTT DoCoMo, Inc. and its eight regional subsidiaries announced today that the N900iL, a dual-network 3G FOMA® handset that runs on both the FOMA network and wireless LANs, will be released on November 16, 2004.
The N900iL is specifically designed to support DoCoMo's exclusive PASSAGE DUPLE™ system for dual-network operation as both a standard FOMA phone and a VoIP mobile phone over a corporate user's internal wireless LAN. The phone and system will both be marketed through DoCoMo's corporate business division and partner companies.
Optional settings enable the phone to exclusively receive incoming calls from either the FOMA network or wireless LAN only, or both networks in dual mode.
Standard phone functions, such as call hold and call transfer, are possible in the wireless LAN mode.
Since the N900iL browser can be used both inside and outside the office, users always have access to important schedules, web mail and documents saved on intranet servers.
A callee status function enables the caller to dial another N900iL handset registered on the same wireless LAN and view its status onscreen (i.e., confirm if the called party is on line, off line, in a meeting, out of office, on a business trip, etc.).
Instant messaging between N900iL handsets on a wireless LAN is also possible.
Please see the attachment for specifications.
