TOKYO, JAPAN, April 20, 2007 --- NTT DoCoMo, Inc. and its eight regional subsidiaries announced today that the company will join the (PRODUCT) RED™ initiative through sales in Japan of M702iS(RED) handset developed by Motorola.

Motorola will donate approximately 1,000 yen for each M702iS(RED) handset purchased and DoCoMo will donate 1% of each user's monthly bill to the Global Fund.

(PRODUCT) RED is a business model whereby major international brands make sustainable donations to the Global Fund through sales of their (PRODUCT) RED items.
