Vodafone Japan to launch 3G and Vodafone Live! in October'03
Vodafone Japan will launch new Vodafone live! mobile internet services after early October on their 3G platform.

The main features of Vodafone live! in Japan will be:
  • Sha-mail picture messaging, Movie Sha-mail video messaging and web contents accessible to customers in exactly the same way abroad as in Japan
  • E-mails with attachments of up to a maximum 200 kilobytes can be sent and received, making for even richer communications
  • Sha-mails with even higher resolutions than before and Movie Sha-mails of up to 40 seconds long can be sent and received
  • Web functions that utilize fast data speeds, allowing for rich contents such as high-resolution
  • QVGA*1-size wallpaper downloads and video clip files of 15 to 30 seconds in length

    In addition, J-PHONE plans to launch a compatible handset, the V801SA by Sanyo, in conjunction with
    these new services. With these offerings, J-PHONE customers will be able to enjoy Vodafone live! on a
    3GPP-based, high-speed W-CDMA network (up to 384kbps downlink) in Japan and by accessing the
    GPRS networks while overseas.

    In conjunction with the launch of Vodafone live! services for VGS, J-PHONE will lower videotelephony and
    64K digital communication charges to the same level as voice calls.

    Coverage is expected to be 95% of the Japanese population at launch, with international roaming in the UK, Spain and Germany.
