Posted: 25-Jun-2004 [Source: NTT DoCoMo]

[New i-mode handset weighs in at 68g and measures 90mm x 40mm x 19.8mm and offers a 1.3-inch 65K TFT LCD display]

Tokyo -- NTT DoCoMo, Inc. and its eight regional subsidiaries announced the July 1 nationwide release of the premini(tm), the smallest i-mode handset ever released, weighing just 69g and measuring only 90mm (height), 40mm (width) and 19.8mm (thickness).

The premini is ideally suited to customers who seek a handset that is simple and compact yet still offers i-mode capability. Despite its small profile, the handset's rounded buttons help users to avoid pushing the wrong button. The 1.3-inch screen (65,536-color TFT LCD) displays up to 160 dots x 128 dots. The premini offers four font sizes (10 dots to 16 dots) and five background color templates. Japanese text input is made easy with PoBox text prediction.

Prior to the launch, premini handsets will be displayed at a total of four shops in Tokyo and Osaka from June 26 to 30. All DoCoMo sales channels will sell the premini from July 1. The price of the handset will be open (unfixed). The battery pack will cost 2,100 yen and AC adaptor will be 945 yen.
