The new F2102V is Fujitsu's successor to the F2051, which was launched in January 2003, also for NTT DoCoMo's FOMA 3G service in Japan. Based on its experience of developing the F2051, Fujitsu has further optimised the performance of the F2102V and has enabled the following enhanced features:

* Client authentication to enable enhanced network security when making mobile payments and other e-commerce transactions over the FOMA network
* miniSD Memory Card storage capability
* PC connectivity to allow for synchronisation and backup of calendar and contact information
* Extended static stand-by time of approximately 310 hours (dynamic: approximately 240 hours)
* Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) audio compression to enable CD-quality sound with NTT DoCoMo's i-motion video clip distribution service
