NTT DoCoMo and its eight regional subsidiaries announced today the development of the attractively designed 704i Series of eight 3G FOMA handsets, featuring the slim mobile TV-capable D704i and SH704i and LG Electronics' "chocolate" design L704i. Here is more info:
"The series meets a wide variety of mobile needs, depending on the model, including "One-segment" terrestrial digital broadcasting, High-Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA), international roaming (3G/GSM/GPRS), "Uta-hodai" full-track music downloads, waterproof design and much more.
The D704i and SH704i provide anytime access to "One-segment" terrestrial digital broadcasts. The F704i is a slender waterproof phone with 3G international roaming capability. The L704i is the global "LG chocolate phone" that enables fast music downloads using HSDPA technology and roaming on 3G, GSM and GPRS networks. The P704i with Smart Flash? is capable of remarkably beautiful pictures, even in poor light, and is compatible with the Uta-hodai service allowing full-track music downloads from i-mode? sites for a flat monthly subscription fee. The SO704i has nine optional Style-Up? panels that illuminate for incoming calls or mail, or when the phone has been closed. The N704iμ and P704iμ (pronounced "i-mew") are 11.4-mm, extra-slim W-CDMA clamshell handsets that still have room for plenty of features, including 3G international roaming.
The F704i, SO704i, N704iμ and P704iμ will be available this month. The D704i and SH704i will go on sale by the end of August. The P704i will be launched by the end of September and the L704i will be available in October."
