TOKYO, JAPAN, September 8, 2011 — NTT DOCOMO, INC. announced today the unveiling of the first tablets compatible with its extra-high-speed next-generation LTE service, Xiâ„¢ (read â€œCrossyâ€). The â€œdocomo Tablet GALAXY Tab 10.1 LTE SC-01Dâ€ will go on sale in Japan in the beginning of October and the â€œdocomo Tablet ARROWS Tab LTE F-01Dâ€ in the middle of October.
Both tablets feature large 10.1-inch displays and are powered by dual core CPUs running on Androidâ„¢ 3.2. The light, thin and fast docomo Tablet GALAXY Tab 10.1 LTE SC-01D is DOCOMOâ€™s LTE-optimized version of the GALAXY Tab 10.1, the latest large-screen tablet in the globally popular GALAXY series. Customized for DOCOMO services such as sp-modeâ„¢, docomo market and Area Mailâ„¢, the device offers excellent operability and mobility. Its 8.6mm body weighs just 565g and it comes with a high-capacity 7,000 mAh battery.
The docomo Tablet ARROWS Tab LTE F-01D, the first Android-based tablet manufactured by Fujitsu Limited, also boasts a thin, lightweight body, measuring 11.3mm thick and weighing just 597g. Its IPX5/IPX7 waterproof design enables users to enjoy video and one-seg mobile TV even while relaxing in the bathtub*. Highly convenient â€œHand Gesture Controlâ€ enables operations to be performed with simple hand gestures without touching the device â€” perfect for checking recipes or performing other tasks while the userâ€™s hands are wet or messy.
In conjunction with the launch of these inaugural Xi-compatible tablets, DOCOMO will offer four new broadband applications, including the popular Hulu and Qik Video services, which are specially suited to Xiâ€™s high-spec mobile video/TV, communications and online gaming capabilities.
In addition, DOCOMO will partially reorganize its device lineup by establishing a separate series for tablets, called â€œdocomo Tablet,â€ in recognition of the growing number of tablets in the market and the differences in usage and needs compared to smartphones. Going forward, DOCOMO will work closely with content providers to steadily expand the range and attractiveness of docomo Tablet content for enhanced user experiences.
