The 900i series, the most advanced series of 3G FOMA i-mode mobile phones ever to be released, features a Macromedia Flash-equipped browser, HTML e-mail and avatar-capable videophone. Compared with the original series of FOMA phones, 900i models offer three times longer standby and weigh 20 percent less.
The main features of the F900i model include:
Sweep-type fingerprint sensor for secure access to the phone and stored data.
CCD camera with 1.28 mega-pixel effective resolution and 1.23 mega-pixel recorded resolution. Takes SXGA (960 x 1,280 pixel) photos and comes with 16-power (8-step) zoom.
Connects to PC via optional USB cable to synchronize schedulers and phone books.
The F900i handles Flash applications of up to 100K, compared to 20K in the 2G mova 505i series. It also handles richer, more sophisticated online games than ever before. Java-based i-appli applications offer a 400K scratch pad and up to 100K for content/archiving, compared to 200K and 30K in existing FOMA models.
The phone will have a 480 hours stand-by time and up to 160 minutes voice calls (100 minutes for video calls). The display is a 2.2" TFT with 262,144 colors supporting QVGA resoluton. The phone comes with two cameras (one for pictures and one for video calling) supporting 1.28 and 0.11 megapixels. The external display is a 1" 3 colors Organic EL LCD (OLED).
All 900i series handsets will be equipped with high-resolution mega-pixel cameras, ranging up to two mega pixels, and slots for either Memory Stick Duo or miniSD memory cards, depending on the model. For more details about the 900i series check our previous article.
