[NTT DoCoMo to develop operator pack compliant with LiMo foundation specs containing Linux OS apps that will implement i-mode, i-appli and other unique DoCoMo services.]

Tokyo -- NTT DoCoMo, Inc. today announced that it will develop an operator pack for FOMA 3G handsets compatible with specifications established by the LiMo Foundation. DoCoMo expects to begin introducing handsets equipped with the operator pack in the second half of 2009.

The pack will contain a suite of Linux operating system-based software applications that implement i-mode, i-appli and other unique DoCoMo services. It will make use of existing assets developed by DoCoMo, including application software and MOAP (Mobilephone Oriented Application Platform) middleware now used in selected DoCoMo handsets. The new operator pack will incorporate elements of a Linux-version MOAP that DoCoMo has developed with NEC Corporation and Panasonic Mobile Communications Co., Ltd.

The adoption of an operator pack and global software platform developed with ACCESS CO., LTD. will enable Japanese makers to market their phones overseas, as well as leverage on their respective strengths to produce distinctive products that satisfy diverse customer needs.

The operator pack will be compliant with specifications established by the LiMo Foundation, a global consortium of industry leaders delivering an open Linux-based software platform for mobile phones. DoCoMo is actively involved with the LiMo Foundation.

DoCoMo is also planning to develop an operator pack based on the Symbian mobile software platform.
