Tokyo -- Vodafone K.K. today announces new services that use Bluetooth technology for wireless
short-range communications. The services will launch together with the Vodafone 904SH, a new
3G mobile handset by Sharp scheduled to go on sale in late April 2006.
By activating Bluetooth V-applis, friends or acquaintances will be able to enjoy instant
messaging and multiplayer games within an approximate 10-metre radius, free of charge. The
services are made possible by functions embedded in new handsets that enable V-applis to
communicate with each other using Bluetooth.
A standard feature in Vodafone K.K. 3G handsets, Bluetooth is a technology widely used for
connecting devices, such as mobile handsets, wireless headsets and PCs. By taking the next step
of connecting people with mobile handsets running Bluetooth V-applis, customers will be able to
enjoy even richer communication with new services.
The 904SH will have a total of 5 pre-installed Bluetooth V-applis, including the instant messaging application "Near Chat." Customers will also be able to download more Bluetooth V-applis from Vodafone live! More Bluetooth V-appli compatible handsets are also planned for the future.
