NTT DoCoMo has announced that the N900i, the second handset in the new 3G FOMA 900i series and distinguished by its arc-shaped side profile, will be released on 22 February 2004. The first FOMA 900i series mobile phone, the F900i was released 3 February 2004.
The 900i series, the most advanced series of FOMA i-mode mobile phones released so far, features 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 FOMA N900i include:
A highly ergonomic arc-shaped profile (when the phone is open).
A CCD external camera with one mega-pixel effective resolution and two mega-pixel recorded resolution. The camera takes photos of up to 1,616 x 1,212 dots in size and comes with a 6.2-power, 16-step digital zoom.
"Dragon Quest I", a popular role-playing game from Square Enix Co., Ltd.
miniSD reader-writer to view data on PCs that are stored on the miniSD memory cards in the phone, by using an optional FOMA USB connecting cable.
Random Melody to assign randomly selected ring tones from selected folders when receiving incoming calls and mails.
The built-in Macromedia Flash browser handles Flash applications of up to 100K. It also is equipped for 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 company is expected to release five models of its 900i series handsets.
