Monday, 06 March 2006

NTT DoCoMo, Inc. and its eight regional subsidiaries announced today that they have developed the third-generation (3G) FOMA SIMPURE series of basic and compact handsets for people who do not require highly sophisticated functions.

The series has two models, SIMPURE L, supplied by LG Electronics, is equipped with a 1.3-megapixel camera despite its compact size and SIMPURE N, supplied by NEC, is the smallest (as of March 6, 2006) of all 3G FOMA handsets at 92 x 44 x 19.2 mm.

DoCoMo is also positioning the SIMPURE series for second handsets used during international travel. SIMPURE models are compatible with DoCoMo's WORLD WING roaming service for voice calls, i-mode, short messaging service (SMS), e-mail and videophone outside Japan with the same phone number and e-mail address used in Japan. The models work on W-CDMA, GSM and GPRS (packet data only) networks.

SIMPURE is a combination of the words SIMPLE and PURE.
