TOKYO, JAPAN, September 25, 2007 --- NTT DoCoMo, Inc. announced today that it has begun providing a mobile solution based on a DoCoMo-developed application to enable mobile devices based on S60 3rd Edition and Symbian OS® to use i-mode™ services like e-mail and web browsing, and also including other advanced services such as i-appli™ Java-based applications and i-channel™ news-headline push service.
