Fujitsu Limited,Fujitsu Toshiba Mobile Communications Limited

Tokyo, June 15, 2011

Fujitsu today announced that the new T008 mobile phone from Fujitsu Toshiba Mobile Communications will be available beginning June 17, 2011, from KDDI Corporation and Okinawa Cellular Telephone Company in Japan.

The T008 is a water-resistant mobile phone with illuminations designed in the image of champagne bubbles that sparkle when receiving incoming calls or e-mails. It features a built-in "connection menu" consisting of four convenient functions for making communication fun. The T008 is also equipped with a high-speed 1GHz Snapdragon™ CPU, and has easy-to-use buttons to make sending e-mail messages simple.


Amid an increasingly diverse landscape of mobile phone user needs, the younger generation of users place emphasis on the mobile phone's design elements, such as sparkling illuminations, as well as its fun e-mail communication and camera features, when selecting a mobile phone.

With the T008, users can choose from over 50 different patterns of illuminations that sparkle when receiving incoming calls or e-mails. In addition, the phone features an LED sub-display screen for displaying the time and the name of the person calling. For names that the user wants kept confidential, the user can choose a setting so that an icon is displayed instead of the name. The built-in "connection menu" has a number of functions for making communication even more fun. This includes functions enabling users to mark messages as "to be read later" for when users are busy and want to carefully read a message afterwards and respond; a "write mail now" function that takes the user directly to the mail composition screen; and others such as birthday reminders.

The T008 has an 8.08 megapixel camera as its main camera, and also has a blog upload function for quickly posting photos taken. It is also equipped with a high-speed 1GHz Snapdragon™ CPU, enabling smooth operation of the e-mail and camera functions.

With its sparkling illuminations, the T008 is a water-resistant mobile phone that makes communication even more enjoyable. The mobile phone is available in three color variations: Rose Pink, Frozen Blue, and Cocktail Black.

Birthday reminder
For birthdays listed in the phone's address book, users are notified on the day of the birthday through the mobile phone's standby screen. From there, users can quickly compose a birthday e-mail greeting to their friends.

4,010 types of preset emoticons make e-mail messages more fun

From 17 different types of functions, users can register the ones they often use so that, just by pressing one button, they are conveniently able to launch desired functions.
