[NTTDoCoMo announces the 3G FOMA P901iTV, their first mobile handset to receive terrestrial digital broadcasting signals. Japan broadcasters formally announced mobile digital broadcasting will launch in April 2006. ]

Tokyo -- NTT DoCoMo, Inc. and its eight regional subsidiaries announced today the development of the 3G FOMA P901iTV, DoCoMo's first mobile handset to receive terrestrial digital broadcasting signals, in addition to conventional analog signals. The handset was developed in response to the planned launch of mobile digital broadcasting in April 2006, which Japanese broadcasters formally announced.

DoCoMo's P901iTV will allow users to enjoy services that converge mobile communications and broadcasting, such as access to TV program related websites by simply clicking the URL shown on the display during the program. The handset's main display will be a 2.5-inch, wide-view LCD screen. More than 2.5 hours of continuous viewing will be possible for digital TV programs. The TV function will be activated by twisting the screen (enabling the lower half of the phone to be used as a convenient handle), or simply pushing a button. An antenna-embedded earphone will enhance TV signal reception.

The P901iTV will be one of DoCoMo's "Osaifu-Keitai" mobile phones with wallet functions, which enable the phone to be used as electronic money, credit card, commuter pass, electronic ticket and more.

DoCoMo will exhibit the P901iTV during the CEATEC Japan 2005 trade show at the Makuhari Messe exhibition center in Chiba Prefecture from October 4 to 8.
