Willcom announce anti-bacterial handset
Today Japanese PHS operator Willcom announced a new version of the nico. handset which has been a permanent feature of the operator’s top 3 bestselling handsets since its launch in July this year. The new version is identical to the existing handset except that it has a special anti-bacterial coating.
PHS handsets give off less electromagnetic interference when compared to their CDMA and GSM cousins and so Willcom are hoping that this, coupled with the antibacterial coating, will give their handsets appeal to medical workers.
The antibacterial nico. is slated to go on sale in late November.
