NTT DoCoMo launches first 3G FOMA and wi-fi mobile phone
NTT DoCoMo has announced the N900iL, a dual network 3G FOMA handset that runs on both FOMA and wireless LAN networks (802.11b). The handset, which is scheduled to be marketed in Fall 2004, has been specifically designed to support the new PASSAGE DUPLE system that was developed by DoCoMo to integrate the two-network operation.

Under the PASSAGE DUPLE system, the N900iL may be used as a standard FOMA handset, as well as an in-house VoIP phone utilizing a company's internal wireless LAN network. The dual-network solution targets corporate users, and will be marketed through DoCoMo's corporate business division and partner companies. The system will not be available through DoCoMo shop locations.

Business users can prioritize standby for incoming calls from either FOMA or the wireless LAN network, or set the handset on dual mode to receive calls from both networks. The handset also comes with a browser function that may be used either inside or outside the office, which allows users to browse items such as schedules, web mail, and documents saved on intranet servers.

Standard telephone functions including call hold and call transfer may also be performed via the wireless LAN network mode.

The new handset comes with a "presence function," which indicates the status of the called party when a call is made between two N900iL handsets registered in the same wireless LAN network. The caller can use the onscreen "presence function" in order to immediately confirm whether the called party is on line, off line, in a meeting, out of the office, on a business trip, etc.

In addition, users may engage in instant messaging between N900iL handsets over the wireless LAN network. The phone's stand by time is max. 280 hours or 230 hours when using the wireless LAN capability. When both modes are on the maximum time is 150 hours. Talk time on FOMA mode is 140 minutes and VoIP around 160 minutes.
