[DoCoMo introduces the "mova F671iS" on September 6 with larger text size, dual-screens and enhanced voice activation features.]
Tokyo -- NTT DoCoMo, Inc. announced today that the company will launch its "mova F671iS" handset on September 6, 2002. The F671iS, an enhanced version of DoCoMo's popular F67li introduced in September 2001, offers a variety of new, convenient features, such as larger text and a function that reads aloud various content.
The F671iS has a large 2.1-inch, 65,536-color TFT LCD for clear text display, as well as a 1.2-inch auxiliary screen on the back of the handset for information such as incoming calls, new mail and new messages. Text size has been enlarged some 65 percent over the previous model, making i-mode content, e-mail messages, stored numbers and e-mail addresses, and other menus even easier to read. In addition, instructions supported with graphics (arrows, etc.) explain how to perform operations, such as check call and mail logs, listen to messages and create mail.
DoCoMo's unique "read-aloud" feature provides voice readouts of a wide variety of information, including mail, call and message logs, the time and day's date, stored numbers, operating menus and more. In addition, a "voice activation" feature enables the user simply to speak into the phone to perform operations such as retrieve and dial stored numbers. "Voice activation" can also be used to bring up 10 preset (changeable) menus to confirm ring volume, new mail and more.
Three one-touch buttons enable speed dialing of three pre-registered numbers, while large, well-spaced keys make operation easy.
The new handset will be marketed through all DoCoMo sales channels. The retail price is open (not fixed). The standard accessory kit, including a battery pack, AC adapter and desktop holder, costs 6,400 yen.
