DoCoMo's camera phone sales have been expanding in recent months as customers become more aware of the convenience and functionality of i-shot. They are especially popular among users between the ages of 20 and 30, who account for about 60% of total sales.
DoCoMo's i-shot service allows still images taken with the phone's built-in camera to be transmitted to virtually any device capable of receiving e-mail. DoCoMo has found that photos are viewed/transferred an average of 2.19 times.
The DoCoMo lineup currently offers 11 camera phones equipped for i-shot and offering a wide variety of related features, including the ability to edit photos as original screensavers using downloaded picture frames.
