[New "FOMA(R) Raku Raku Phone" main camera has a 320,000 pixel resolution, users can make videphone calls and send and receive i-motion mail(tm).]

Tokyo -- NTT DoCoMo, Inc. and its eight regional subsidiaries unveiled today a new 3G "FOMA(R) Raku Raku PHONE" handset.

The handset is equipped with a camera that has an effective resolution of 320,000 pixels, and is the first model in the easy-to-use "Raku Raku PHONE" series to be compatible with the 3G network. As a result, users will be able to make videophone calls, as well as send and receive i-motion mail(tm). The handset also features a "voice mail" function that allows users to send and receive voice messages.

Users may also easily receive voice calls and videophone calls by following the blinking keys and the instructions displayed on the screen. As with previous easy-to-use handsets, this model displays detailed image-based instructions to smoothly walk users through each step of basic operations such as creating and sending mail.

The handset comes with a "Read Aloud" function that enables voice readouts for a wide variety of information including text from i-mode sites, message logs, operating menus, handset calculator input and output, notification of outgoing-message transmission, battery recharge alert, and more.

The phone has a large 2.4-inch QVGA LCD and text font can be enlarged to 30 dots, making text display easier to read.
