Docomo unveils Japan’s 1st two devices for V-High multimedia broadcasting services


NTT Docomo on Thursday announced two Android-compatible mobile devices, the “docomo NEXT series AQUOS PHONE SH-06D” smartphone and the “docomo Tablet MEDIAS TAB N-06D,” Japan’s first devices compatible with V-High multimedia broadcasting service. The smartphone and tablet will be sold in Japan only from March and April respectively.

Users of the two devices will be able to watch mmbi, Inc’s “NOTTV,” a mobile multimedia broadcasting station that will begin operating on April 1.

The waterproof SH-06D smartphone features a 4.5-inch high-definition glass-less 3D display with a 1.2 GHz dual core CPU. It comes with a tabletop holder equipped with a built-in antenna that enables viewing of multimedia broadcasts while the smartphone is charging in the holder. The SH-06D smartphone is compatible with Docomo’s Osaifu-Keitai mobile-wallet services and can receive existing “one-seg” mobile TV.

The N-06D tablet, the world’s thinnest (9.9 mm) waterproof tablet, is compatible with Docomo’s “Xi” LTE service. It boasts a large 7-inch WXGA high-definition display, weighs just 350 grams and is equipped with high-quality audio speakers. It also runs on a 1.2 GHz dual core CPU and is compatible with both Osaifu-Keitai and one-seg services.

Finally but too late for the Japanese market.... Samsung is still #1 world wide with Android phones and Japan is gonna have to start selling up to date hardware phones world wide to catch up!

420yen a month... Is that enough info for you? It is hoping to replace one-seg mobile TV, with higher quality picture, and simultaneous transmission of files/data via the 3G network. Dont think this is going to take off like they are hoping. Free One-seg with multiple channels? Or paid NOTTV with 1 channel and a bit better quality.

Japan doesn't have a 3G network.

Water proof phones are slightly gimmicky, although never can be to sure when you might spill something on your phone or tablet, water proof cameras have a better advantage though.

I'm not sure what "Japan doesn't have a 3G network." means in this context.
