NTT DoCoMo Inc. said today it plans to sell two new third-generation videophone handsets and a new 3G card-type terminal for personal computers soon. The move is aimed at luring more subscribers to its 3G mobile communications service.
“DoCoMo expects to release the two new 3G videophones – the ‘F2102V’ model made by Fujitsu Ltd. and the ‘N2102V’ model made by NEC Corp. – this summer, said Atsushi Shimazaki, DoCoMo’s Director of Sales Promotion. ‘Regarding the videophone handsets, they are likely to retail at prices not so different from current handsets,’ Shimazaki said at a press conference. DoCoMo’s current 3G handsets retail for around Y30,000.”
