NTT DoCoMo FOMA F1100 Smartphone with Windows Mobile 6.0 Japanese operating system

NTT DoCoMo, Inc. and its eight regional subsidiaries announced today the development of smart phone FOMA F1100 equipped with the Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.0 Japanese-edition operating system. The FOMA F1100 allow users to interface with PCs through proven applications such as Outlook Mobile and Internet Explorer Mobile, while the scalable plug-in environment means access to a growing number of applications. The HSDPA-capable handsets employ McAfee security scan to ensure high-speed, protected browsing of PC websites and email management. The security scan function identifies and isolates malicious data before it is downloaded. The FOMA F1100, developed with business users in mind, can access both FOMA and wireless LAN networks for IP telephony.The handset comes with a fingerprint authentication feature to ensure tight security control.

Data entry on the F1100 is accomplished with a standard ten-key input layout — as such this handset combines smartphone capability with mobile phone convenience. DoCoMo plans to begin market the handset FOMA F1100 during the first quarter of calendar year 2008.
