NTT DoCoMo announced that the P900i, the third handset in the new 3G FOMA 900i series, will be released on 29 February 2004.
The 900i series, the most advanced series of FOMA i-mode mobile phones ever 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 just-released 900i series is expected to fuel a sharp increase in FOMA subscribers, which has already exceeded 2 million.
The main features of the FOMA P900i include
10 interchangeable decorative jackets (1 equipped with phone; 9 more optional).
CCD external camera with 1.28 mega-pixel effective resolution (1.23 recorded resolution), capable of taking up to SXGA (1,280 x 960) photos. Includes 10-power, 30-step digital zoom and auto focus.
Full version of "Final Fantasy", a popular role-playing game from Square Enix Co., Ltd.
Connects to compatible TVs, where still photos may be viewed and videos taken by the handset and saved on miniSD memory card may be played. Also allows content to be played that has been taken by a compatible video device and saved onto a miniSD memory card.
Takes/sends still photos as i-mode mail attachments while making voice calls, which the receiver can also view during the conversation.
The P900i, like other 900i models, is equipped with a Macromedia Flash browser to enjoy rich content enhanced with highly fluid animation. It handles Flash applications of up to 100K (compared to 20K in 2G mova 505i series). 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 phone comes with two cameras, the outside one has an effective resolution of 1.28 mega pixels, while the outside one is 100,000 pixels. The model offers up to 500 hours stand by and 150 minutes of voice calls or 90 minutes of video calls.
