Fujitsu Introduces docomo with series™ ARROWS Kiss F-03D

Compact smartphone with elegant and glimmering jewelry design

Fujitsu Limited

Tokyo, November 21, 2011

Fujitsu today announced that its new smartphone, docomo with series ARROWS Kiss F-03D, will be available from NTT DOCOMO, Inc. in Japan beginning November 25, 2011.

ARROWS Kiss F-03D is a smartphone with "gem-cut" buttons that sparkle like actual jewelry. Providing users with an option other than finger touch-based operations, ARROWS Kiss F-03D comes with a stylus that makes it easy to write intricate Japanese characters.

In addition to cute and convenient applications, such as a personal diary feature, ARROWS F-03D caters to the fashion requests of female smartphone users with its design and user interface. The smartphone is also equipped with one-segment TV broadcast, mobile wallet (Osaifu Keitai), and infrared communication function. With a compact width of 59mm, ARROWS Kiss F-03D is an elegant, water-resistant smartphone, making it a great choice for first-time users.

Background

With the rapid shift in the market toward smartphones, Fujitsu developed a fashionable mobile phone that adds sparkle to the user without compromising on either aesthetics or functionality.

Encased in a compact jewelry-based design, ARROWS Kiss F-03D comes with a stylus which can be attached by a strap to the smartphone for easy portability. The stylus can be used to write delicate Japanese characters or to select links with pinpoint accuracy, making the mobile phone easy to operate.

Compatible with "Okudake-Juden"(1) wireless recharging, the smartphone can be recharged by simply placing it on the wireless charger thus eliminating the physical process of connecting the handset with a wire-based charger. This feature will become even more convenient as more stores and restaurants throughout Japan become equipped to enable wireless recharging.

The diary application freely allows handwritten input and the posting of photos, just like an analog pocket planner. It is equipped with many fun features, such as memos which enable users to choose from among many cute design templates, and original fonts which enable users to create their own fonts with their handwriting.

Furthermore, the photo enhancement application allows users to decorate photos taken with the smartphone's 8.1 megapixel(2) high-performance camera. With a range of decorative effects including air brushing, users can have fun manipulating photos the same way they do at the "purikura" or print club photo booths that are extremely popular in Japan.

ARROWS Kiss F-03D comes in two colors: Precious White, with white and gold framing; and Elegant Pink, with a pearl pink ambiance.
