[NTTDoCoMo to launch "i-channel," a telop text service offering a variety of content delivered to the phone's standby screen. Service to be compatible with new FOMA 701i model handsets.]

Tokyo -- NTT DoCoMo, Inc. and its eight regional subsidiaries announced today that the companies will launch "i-channel," a news and information service, and compatible handsets, the 3G FOMA 701i series.

Subscribers to i-channel will automatically receive various content, such as news, weather, entertainment reports, sports news and horoscopes, delivered to the phone's standby screen as telop text. By pushing the i-channel button, a channel list will appear and the user can select the channel they want to view.

The service costs 150 yen per month for receiving automatic telop text news and information, which will be updated about every two hours. i-channel users can also add their own channels, which means any information provider can join the i-channel system. A separate packet communications charge will apply for viewing individual channels.

The service will be launched concurrently with three FOMA 701i models, which are to be released shortly. FOMA 701i handsets will be compatible with the i-channel service and all standard FOMA services and functions, including videophone, ChakuUta ring songs, ChakuMotion ring videos, Deco-mail decorative e-mails, i-appli JAVA and Macromedia Flash applications.

New 701i handsets models include:

P701iD from Panasonic featuring "Hikari Drops" illumination which changes in conjunction with the embedded melody and an SD audio player allowing users to listen to downloaded music in high-quality sound.

D701i with emotional lighting - decorative lights change with voice or ringtone. i-channel content can be viewed through "Inspiration Window" even when the handset is folded.

N701i offers 32 color combinations with "Styleplus" custom jackets. Reading QR code attached to each Styleplus jacket customizes standby screen to match the jacket. FOMA's first "Disney mode" turns all the screen designs to Disney. "Secret mode" has "secret folder" to protect privacy.
