[New 3G handsets include the Vodafone 702NK II (NOkia 6680), the Vodafone 703N by NEC, and the Vodafone 703SHf by Sharp, the first 3G handset to come with an embedded Mobile FeliCa smartcard supporting 'Vodafone live! Felica' mobile wallet services.]

Tokyo -- Vodafone K.K. announces that it will offer 3 new 3G handsets for the 2005 fall and winter season. The Vodafone 702NK II (Nokia 6680) is scheduled to go on sale from late October, and the Vodafone 703SHf by Sharp and Vodafone 703N by NEC are set to debut in early November.

The 703SHf will be Vodafone K.K.'s first 3G handset to come with an embedded Mobile FeliCa smartcard to support 'Vodafone live! FeliCa' mobile wallet services.

Vodafone live! FeliCa is a service that lets customers enjoy highly convenient services for their daily lives by using Vodafone live! FeliCa compatible V-applis (IC applis) installed in Mobile FeliCa smartcard equipped handsets. A new Vodafone live! FeliCa menu will be added to the Vodafone live! mobile internet menu list so customers can easily search for and download IC applis. The service will also feature enhancements only possible with mobile handsets, such as transaction histories for various services and point balance checking, as well as online recharges and support for a variety of procedures done over the network. Vodafone live! FeliCa is an easy-to-understand service with security functions for when a handset is lost.
