Foma F905i Taiwan launch
Japanese wireless provider NTT DoCoMo and handset maker Fujitsu on Wednesday announced the Foma F905i handset will be offered in Taiwan. Offered for the first time outside of Japan, the handset will support traditional Chinese characters and therefore enable users to access the Taiwanese carrier Far EasTone's i-mode mobile Internet service. The handset has a swiveling 3.2-inch, 480x864 display and features a fingerprint scanner usually found in notebook PCs for security.
The handset sports a 3.2-megapixel camera with a CMOS sensor. The battery is rated to last 3 hours and 20 minutes when using 3G GSM networks for access to data, or 505 hours when left in standby mode. At this time, it's unknown if the Foma F905i will be offered in countries other than Japan and Taiwan.
