NTT DoCoMo FOMAF801i 3G mobile phone offers new child-friendly features!
NTT DoCoMo announced today that the FOMAF801i, a new child-friendly 3G mobile phone loaded with special features for the safety and convenience of children. In an emergency, the child can quickly switch on the phone’s 100-decibel alarm, which produces two types of noise alternately.
When the alarm is activated, the phone also emits a bright light (high-intensity LED) that is easily visible to people in the surrounding area. The phone can be set to automatically notify loved ones when the alarm is activated, and provide the handset’s current location as well. In addition, the child can discreetly message their location to a registered imadoco search user by simply pushing a button on the side of the phone.If the phone’s power is switched off, a presetting can enable the handset to automatically turn back on (in as little as five minutes) and message the incident and the phone’s location to a registered DoCoMo phone.
An amulet-style remote controller worn by the child can be used to make a misplaced phone beep if within a range of about 10 meters (may vary with usage environment). If the user moves even farther from the handset, the phone can automatically lock (requires presetting). If the handset remains out of the amulet’s range for more than five minutes, a message can be sent automatically to a registered DoCoMo phone.
The F801i is ergonomically designed for easy use by small hands, and its waterproof body can withstand accidental immersion (up to 30 minutes at one-meter depth) or concentrated water sprays. The phone’s soft-rectangle shape and round speaker grille enclosed by a ring-shape LED were conceived by renowned designer Kashiwa Sato to symbolize safety, peace of mind, creativity and the future and will go on sale December 20.
