Fujitsu today announced that the new F001 mobile phone from Fujitsu Toshiba Mobile Communications will be available in Japan beginning November 9, 2011, from KDDI Corporation and Okinawa Cellular Telephone Company.
Developed in collaboration with the global acrylic product brand Liquitex, F001 is a colorful mobile phone that is available in seven different colors. In addition to the handset's slim, curved form factor that fits easily into the hands of all users, it is also equipped with a high-performance 13.1 megapixel camera that launches in about 0.5 seconds, among the fastest load times of its class(1). The water-resistant mobile phone features vivid rainbow keypad illuminations, as well as a wide range of features designed for ease of use, including a Quick Deco feature for creating decorated e-mails with a single touch, as well as Fujitsu's unique HAKKIRI VOICE (translated as "clear voice") Basic and YUKKURI VOICE (translated as "slow voice") functions.
As users continue to replace their mobile phone handsets with smartphones, there are still many customers who continue to prefer the advanced functionality, high-performance, and comfort of conventional mobile phones. It is for such customers that Fujitsu has developed F001, a high-performance mobile phone featuring water- and dust-resistant technology(2) that offers a rich lineup of color options, as well as a full range of camera and e-mail features. F001 is the first Fujitsu brand mobile phone created for au since the establishment of Fujitsu Toshiba Mobile Communications in October 2010. The mobile phone is the result of enhanced product development specifically for au.
To make the most of its high-performance 13.1 megapixel camera, the new mobile phone is equipped with the "Exmor® R for mobile" back-illuminated CMOS sensor and Fujitsu's high-resolution Milbeaut® Mobile image processing engine(3), thereby enabling low-noise and high-resolution photography. In addition, F001 comes with a variety of advanced photography capabilities, including a Best Shot Select feature that captures seven continuous photographs with a single press of the shutter and automatically selects the best image, as well as an art camera mode featuring 11 kinds of special effect filter functions. The mobile phone's camera also incorporates features for enhancing photo images.
In terms of its e-mail capabilities, F001 comes with a total of 4,010 preset emoticons(4), the largest number available on an au mobile phone(5). By employing the Quick Deco feature, users can easily compose expressive e-mail messages. Furthermore, the mobile phone is equipped with a 1GHz high-speed Snapdragon™ CPU, which makes operating the camera and e-mail features clear and simple.
F001 is available in seven colors made possible in collaboration with Liquitex: SNOWFLAKE WHITE, FRENCH SHELL PINK, RASPBERRY RED, HONEY GOLD, BRIGHT AQUAMARINE, OCEAN BLUE, and PIANO BLACK.
