Posted: 01-Feb-2006 [Source: NTTDoCoMo]

[NTTDoCoMo announces it will be demonstrating prototypes of 4G handsets at 3GSM. The handsets have been developed with Fujitsu, Motorola and NEC.]

Tokyo -- NTT DoCoMo, Inc. and its eight regional subsidiaries announced today three prototype high-speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) handsets developed with Fujitsu, Motorola and NEC, respectively. DoCoMo aims to start HSDPA services sometime between July and September 2006.

HSDPA, a high-speed packet transmission technology standardized by the Third Generation Partnership Project, offers a theoretical maximum downlink speed of about 14Mbps. At present, the prototype handsets have maximum speeds of 3.6Mbps, 10 times faster than current 3G FOMA handsets. HSDPA is expected to facilitate powerful new services by enabling high-volume downloads and the viewing of highly rich content.

The handsets will be demonstrated at the DoCoMo booth at the 3GSM World Congress 2006 in Barcelona, Spain from February 13 to 16.

In addition to announcing the projected launch of HSDPA services, NTTDoCoMo has also announced it will be terminating its Personal Handyphone System (PHS) mobile phone 2G service during the third quarter (October-December) of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2008. DoCoMo will announce the specific date for termination of the service after monitoring PHS usage trends of existing customers.

DoCoMo will continue to contact current PHS subscribers to remind them of the termination plan and to encourage them to switch to an alternative service, such as DoCoMo's 3G FOMA.
