NTT DoCoMo to Introduce First GPS Handset , the F611i
Posted: 28-Mar-2003 [Source: NTT DoCoMo]

[F611i users to have access to eight types of GPS content including transportation and restaurant data with GPS location information accurate to within 10-50 meters.]

NTT DoCoMo, Inc. announces its first Global Positioning Service (GPS) compatible handset, dubbed F661i, to be available the end of April or later.

The easy-to-use GPS mobile phone enables users to determine their location at the mere touch of a button, and download maps and information about the area. GPS accuracy is within 10-50 meters.

Users will have access to eight different types of GPS content available from eight information providers, including public transportation and restaurant data, as well as routing to help pinpoint specific locations.

Users can also let others know their location by inputting the URL of their position into an e-mail, which can be sent to any i-mode compatible handset. In addition, a memo function allows users to store location information, including maps, telephone numbers and addresses, for easy access at a later date.

The F661i features three highly advanced tracking functions that can be used in conjunction with the DLP (DoCoMo Location Platform), which provides fast and highly accurate positioning information.

The first function enables a third party to use an i-mode phone or PC to locate the F66li user, ideal for tracking family members such as children and seniors.

The second function allows one-touch location notification to pre-determined numbers, such as police or fire departments, especially valuable in emergency situations as it allows rescuers to accurately pinpoint the user's location.

Third, the F66li can be used as a business management tool, helping delivery companies, for example, track the location of their vehicles to expedite smoother operations.

A separate contract with an application service provider (ASP) is required to use these three advanced functions. A total of 13 applications will be available from 11 ASPs, including SOHGO SECURITY SERVICES CO., LTD., ZENRIN DataCom Co., Ltd., Home Net Co., Ltd. and NAIS Location Systems Co., Ltd.
