Motorola M1000 3G FOMA

NTT DoCoMo announced that they have developed a highly advanced, business-use FOMA handset that will provide full access to the Web with its Opera 7.5 browser (1). The M1000 will be compatible with overseas networks, work with POP and IMAP e-mail and open e-mail attachments (2).

The main features will include:

  • Compatible with overseas W-CDMA, GSM and GPRS networks and public wireless LANs (2).
  • Opens Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, PDF, etc. files.
  • Works with multiple e-mail accounts.
  • Access to DoCoMo's public wireless LANs in airports, subways, etc. for a flat rate (2).
  • Bluetooth compatible for hands-free telephone calls (using wireless headset) and wireless connection to PCs.
  • Preinstalled with personal information management (PIM) software.
  • Remote access to intranets (3).
  • Free software development kit.

*1 Via NTT DoCoMo's ISP services, mopera U or other ISP.
*2 Requires subscription to mopera U.
*3 Requires subscription to business mopera.

The handset is also the first announced by a Japanese carrier that can connect to public 802.11b WLAN (wireless LAN) hotspots, a feature that will prove useful for corporate users who want to quickly download large files, Tamura said. WCDMA has a maximum transmission speed of 384Kbps compared to a maximum of 11Mbps for 801.11b WLAN.

But the M1000 lacks two of DoCoMo's trademark applications; the I-mode mobile Internet service, and the Felica contactless smart-card system, which enables phones to double as electronic cash and loyalty cards and to be used for functions such as airport check-in.

I-mode has been a prominent feature of DoCoMo's service since it was launched in 1999, and was instrumental in popularizing mobile Internet use in Japan. At the end of March 2005, 44 million of DoCoMo's 48.3 million subscribers had I-mode capable phones, according to the Telecommunications Carriers Association. DoCoMo has also been pushing the Felica service since 2004 and most of the carrier's new phones have the function.
