TOKYO, JAPAN, January 17, 2006 --- NTT DoCoMo and its eight regional companies announced today the development of the new 702i Series of 3G FOMA® handsets.
The stylish 702i Series consists of five models — SH702iD, N702iD, F702iD, D702i and P702i — three of which were conceived by noted outside designers:
SH702iD (Sharp): Shin Matsunaga
N702iD (NEC): Kashiwa Sato
F702iD (Fujitsu): Keiko Hirano and Aoshi Kudo
The 702i handsets are equipped for i-channel™, which automatically delivers updated news, weather, entertainment, sports and horoscopes via teletype to the standby screen.
All 702i models are preinstalled with G-GUIDE® EPG Remote Control, an i-appli® application that downloads program listings for both terrestrial digital and analog TV broadcasts. Using the phone like a remote control, the information can be used to program DVD recorders and other A/V equipment.
This is the first 70x series to offer automatic Security Scan, which uses automatic downloads in the background to update phones with the latest security software from DoCoMo.
Please see the attachments for details.
The five models will be exhibited at Aoyama Spiral (www.spiral.co.jp) from January 17 to 22*.
* Exhibit hours: January 17, 4 p.m. -8 p.m., January 18-22, 11 a.m.-8 p.m.
