| NEC is ready to showcase a brand-new series of high-end mobile handsets including the world’s thinnest 2.5G fold-type camera-phone (2mm slimmer than Motorola’s V3), a prototype HSDPA 3G mobile phone and other end-to-end mobile solutions and handsets.|
The new HSDPA prototype, which was jointly developed by NEC and NTT DoCoMo for NTT DoCoMo’s HSDPA commercial service, which is scheduled to begin within the second quarter of fiscal 2006, promises a maximum data download speed of 3.6Mbit/s, a rate almost 10 times faster than that of present 3G terminals.
This enables the download of large volumes of data and the browsing of rich contents, and is expected to realize a whole new and advanced range of uses in the future.
NEC will also display the world’s thinnest 2.5G fold-type camera-phones: N412i and N500iS (i-mode). An EDGE function was added in the ultra-thin structure of the new model, enabling high-speed, real-time video streaming. The stylish model also features a music player (MP3 and AAC), Bluetooth and USB connectivity, and a 1.3-Megapixel CMOS camera.
In addition, NEC will exhibit its latest handsets and end-to-end mobile solutions such as its digital terrestrial TV mobile phone and 3G/W-LAN dual mobile phone, contributing to the realisation of future mobile multimedia applications.
At this year’s 3GSM World Congress, NEC will also unveil a selection of integrated products and services that show how NEC is adding value today to its customers by providing end-to-end solutions.
NEC’s booth illustrates network evolution, service solutions, customer value chain solutions, a product portfolio of network infrastructure and value added services, mobile handsets and semiconductor solutions.
