Vodafone K.K. today announces that it plans to offer two new 2G models in the middle of February,
the V603SH by Sharp and the V603T by Toshiba.
For the first time in Japan, the V603SH features a Motion Control Sensor that recognises and
responds to movements, enabling customers to experience a host of new features not available in
mobile phones until now. Jointly developed by Aichi Steel Corporation and Vodafone K.K., the
one-chip sensor allows customers to perform menu operations by moving the handset up, down,
left or right and call up often-used functions (shortcuts) by moving the handset in a variety of preset patterns. Customers can also enjoy new possibilities with mobile gaming, such as aiming a gun by moving the handset while playing shooting games and swinging the phone like a golf club to hit a ball in golf games.
The V603T offers an innovative 'TV View Style' design to increase TV viewing enjoyment for
customers. By holding down the unlock button located on the side of the handset while it is open, customers can push the LCD display backward a complete 360 degrees to activate the TV.
The V603SH and V603T feature analogue TV tuners, which enable both TV viewing and FM radio
listening. Customers can also relive scenes from their favourite TV shows by using capture
functions to record broadcasts. In addition, both handsets come equipped with an Electronic
Program Guide (EPG) so customers can easily find the shows they want to watch.
