More information on DoCoMo's summer lineup
More information is beginning to come out on DoCoMo’s summer lineup of 10 new 3G handsets announced yesterday.
The SO902iWP+ is the first FOMA handset to feature water proofing and can be completely submerged in water 1m deep for up to 30 minutes. The DOLCE SL ‘luxury handset’ is covered with synthetic leather. The SA702i includes a digital compass which works together with its GPS functionality to power it’s ‘pedestrian navi’ application software.
Many of the handsets are big on music playback capability, presumably in preparation for the launch of a DoCoMo music service to rival au’s LISMO!. The N902iS supports SD audio playback and features 1gb of onboard memory and the SH901iS contains a battery which lasts for 22 hours of continuous playback.
