Posted: 22-Jan-2010 [Source: NTT DoCoMo]

[The DoCoMo Xperia from Sony Ericsson built on the Android platform to go on sale in Japan this April featuring a 4" touchscreen and 1GHz CPU.]

Tokyo -- NTT DOCOMO, INC. unveiled its docomo Smartphone Xperia™, manufactured by Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications and known as the Xperia™ X10 in markets outside Japan, which is scheduled to go on sale in Japan this April.

Built on the open Android operating system and powered by a fast 1GHz CPU, the docomo Smartphone Xperia™ with 4.0-inch touchscreen is a brand-new entertainment machine for enjoying intelligent mobile communication, web browsing, music and other media (see attachment).

The docomo Smartphone Xperia™ features Mediascape, a Sony Ericsson signature application for intuitive organization of music, photos and videos. If the new "infinite button" is pressed while playing a song, Mediascape searches for all content related to the artist across a broad range of media, both in-phone and online, such as music, videos and information.

Another signature Sony Ericsson application, Timescape™, intuitively organizes communication histories with each individual and provides quick mobile access to the user's favorite means of communication. When the "infinite button" is pressed, Timescape™ presents one convenient view of all interactions with an individual, such as voice, e-mail (configuration required), Twitter™, Facebook™ and mixi™, a popular social network service in Japan. The phonebook also synchronizes with postings on Twitter and Facebook.

The docomo Smartphone Xperia™ is compatible with FOMA™ HIGH-SPEED, DOCOMO's HSUPA/HSDPA data-communication service for extra-fast 2.0 Mbps uplinks and 7.2 Mbps downlinks (theoretical maximums). It also is equipped for Wi-Fi®, uploading videos and photos to YouTube™ and Picasa™, and downloading applications from Android Market™, allowing users to co-create an experience that is entirely unique to them. Google services such as Google search, Google Maps™ and Gmail™ are preloaded.

The docomo Smartphone Xperia™ comes with POBox™ Touch 1.0, Sony Ericsson's unique predictive text-input system for Japanese and English. The phone intelligently predicts words and then highlights the next key for quicker, easier input.

The docomo Smartphone Xperia™ intelligently recognizes up to five faces from photos stored in the phonebook and automatically tags faces in photos taken with the handset's 8.1-megapixel camera. The user can make phone calls or send emails to an individual by simply touching their tag in a photo.

Coinciding with the docomo Smartphone Xperia™ launch, "docomo market" will start up as a new mobile web portal for smartphone users. The portal will introduce recommended content and applications, including original offerings from DOCOMO, to help smartphone users in Japan discover new mobile experiences.
