NNEC Corporation announced the launch of the world's slimmest *1 W-CDMA clamshell handset featuring 3G international roaming, on the Japanese market. NTT DoCoMo, Inc introduced the new N704iμ, successor of N703iμ *2, to the market on July 20, 2007.

Realized by NEC's cutting-edge technology, the W-CDMA clamshell handset featuring 3G international roaming is super slim, extra lightweight, weighs a mere 90g, and is only 11.4 mm deep when folded. Despite boasting the world's slimmest body, the phone simultaneously achieves almost one full month of battery life, one of the longest-lasting batteries in the 3G FOMA handset range, making this phone ideal for the regular foreign traveler.

In order to attract new product innovators and users seeking only the most stylish, yet highly functional model, the new handsets adopt a completely unique design, which enables bright and colorful LED display of graphics, letters, and original designs on the top casing of the handset, alerting the user of new calls and messages by an original LED signal. The phone also features a special coating that creates stereoscopic patterns on the flat surface of the handset casing.

The new handsets are based on NEC Electronics' highly-integrated "Medity M1" system LSI chip, and ultra-thin speakers and other small devices from NEC's research laboratories, which were integrated by NEC's proprietary ultra-thin surface mounting technologies.
