NTT DoCoMo new FOMA SA700iS handset includes GPS
NTT DoCoMo, Inc. have developed new 3G FOMA handsets, FOMA DOLCE and SA700iS. While the FOMA DOLCE will be released nationwide in Japan on 5 August 2005, the SA700iS's launch date has not been determined yet but is expected to be soon.

The FOMA DOLCE is covered with artificial leather. "Mobile Advanced Super-V LCD with Switchable Viewing Angle" can be viewed at a narrow or wide angle for easy reading, while illuminated one-touch keys can be used to create shortcuts to phonebook, mail addresses and others. In addition, an independent volume control key makes it easy to adjust volume even during a call.

SA700iS is the first FOMA handset with GPS capability. Navigation functions can be started at a single touch of the dedicated button, and there is a link to i-area to make searching for locations easier. Users can also print images directly from the handset by simply connecting the phone to a printer with the FOMA USB cable.

The SA700iS also comes with two built-in digital cameras. The internal one with 100,000 pixels and the external one with 1.3 megapixels. The main display is a QVGA TFT (2.2", 240x320 pixels), while the secondary display is an OLED display (0.9", 96x64 pixels). The handset accepts miniSD cards for memory expansion.
