December 14, 1999 (TOKYO) -- "NTT Mobile Communications Network Inc. (NTT DoCoMo) announced the "Pocket mopera" mobile information terminal, which lets users send and receive e-mail and browse Web sites via its cellular phone.

"On the display of the Pocket mopera terminal an icon to connect NTT DoCoMo's "mopera" Internet service is presented on the screen, so that even beginners can access the Internet easily. The terminal also complies with the packet transmission service with a specific levying system for data volume. When it is connected with an NTT DoCoMo mobile phone that works with the company's "DoPa" packet communications service, the terminal supports a maximum 28.8kbps packet data transfer.

"PocketMopera is scheduled to be launched on Dec. 17 at a price of 24,800 yen. (102.39 yen = US$1) Users can send and receive e-mail through mopera's proprietary mail service "mopera POP mail," in addition to exchanging Internet mail. NTT DoCoMo's other mail services such as "mopera IMAP mail" and "10 yen mail" are not available with this new terminal.

"It also provides personal information management functions such as addresses, memos and calendars, along with a clock and a calculator. The memory available for users is about 1.5MB. It holds about 300 mails, 300 addresses, 500 lines of memos and 500 schedules as its maximum recording capacity. Users of NTT DoCoMo's "N208" or "N208S" cellular phones also can compile an original calling melody with the terminal.

"Pocket mopera needs two size AA batteries. If it is not used for communication, the terminal can operate for 37 hours straight. It can run for 14 hours if used as a communication terminal.

"Its liquid-crystal display monitor has four levels of gray scale. It can display 20 letters by 15 lines, maximum. It measures 141mm wide by 103mm thick by 21mm high, and it weighs about 230g, including batteries.
