DOCOMO to Launch Xperia Handset in Japanese Market

TOKYO, Jan 21, 2010 - (ACN Newswire) - NTT DOCOMO, INC. today 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.

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.
