NTT DoCoMo launches series of 3G mobile-wallet phones
Japanese mobile operator NTT DoCoMo, Inc. is developing the 3G FOMA 901iS series, five handsets equipped for mobile-wallet e-money, ticketing and other mobile smart-card functions.

DoCoMo expects the new series to fuel the continued nationwide expansion of convenient mobile-wallet services. The 901iS is also expected to further boost the popularity of handsets equipped with FeliCa IC card technology, which have sold more than 3.34 million units to date.

The 901iS is DoCoMo's first series in which all models are equipped for mobile-wallet functions. Approximately 20,000 stores are currently offering mobile-wallet services in Japan.

The five 901iS handsets are equipped with several security features to prevent malicious use. In the event that a 901iS phone is misplaced, for example, the owner can call a designated phone number to lock the phone remotely. It can also be programmed to lock automatically if left unused for a specified period. In addition, it can be locked manually by simply pushing a button.

901iS handsets can also be used in cells where FOMA base stations transmit, such as mountainous areas where regular FOMA signals are not available.

Some models come with Adobe Reader LE, which enables 901iS phones to view PDF files downloaded from i-mode sites. All basic PDF functions are available, including scrolling, paging, text searches, bookmarks and page rotation. In addition, i-mode technology enables the user to quickly e-mail the file, as well as dial a number or navigate to a Web link in the file.

Some of the common features with the existing 901i series include music player, 3D surround sound, Deco-Mail to decorate e-mails with backgrounds, G-GUIDE interactive TV guide and recording programmer and security scanning for virus mail and websites.
