Fujitsu Introduces Disney Mobile on docomo F-03F

(ENP Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ENP Newswire - 10 December 2013 Release date- 09122013 - Tokyo - Fujitsu today announced that Disney Mobile on docomo F-03F, its new smartphone, will be available exclusively in Japan as of December 13, 2013 from NTT DOCOMO, Inc.

From its colorful design concept to its rich library of preinstalled content, Disney Mobile on docomo F-03F is packed to the brim with the magic of Disney. F-03F is the fifth model to be introduced from the Disney Mobile on docomo series.

The latest model comes preinstalled with 100 kinds of art content, based on the Mickey Mouse motif, which a team of artists created to bring the world of Disney to life in full color.

As an added service from Disney Mobile on docomo, customers can gain complimentary access(1) to over 30,000 videos, TV dramas, applications and other content on the Disney Market online store. The phone also comes with a cradle holder that is perfect for viewing photographs and Disney Cinema video content in full color on the phone's 4.7-inch OLED display, thereby providing users with an opportunity to fully enjoy the world of Disney.

Amid the growing popularity of smartphones, Disney Mobile continues to release captivating smartphones that have the new value to consistently garner the support of Disney fans and a wide range of other users. By leveraging the product ideas and technologies that Fujitsu has cultivated since the era of feature phones, the company has worked with NTT DOCOMO and Disney to develop a smartphone that delivers new value to the Disney Mobile series.

The phone also comes preinstalled with a host of exclusive content, such as seven kinds of colorful characters and Disney fonts, in addition to updated versions of the earphone jack accessory and cradle holder from previous models.

The F-03F features a full range of high-spec capabilities, including a 13.1 megapixel camera that is great for capturing night shots and illuminated shots; a 2,600 mAh battery enabling over two days(2) of battery life; 32GB of internal memory, which provides ample room for users to store a plethora of Disney content; and water-resistant technology(3), which even enables users to enjoy using the phone in the bathroom. Disney Mobile on docomo F-03F is available in three colors: White, Pink and Blue.

Product Features 1. Brings the colorful world of Disney to life The rear panel of the F-03F uses a pearl powder coating to deliver a glossy, dazzling finish in Pink, Blue or White. The rear panel's Mickey Mouse icon features a dotted gradation that gives an appearance of depth and transparency. Moreover, the accompanying earphone jack accessory is made of polarized pearl, which sparkles in the light, and when plugged into the handset, users can enjoy a different on-screen animation, selected at random from among four different colorful characters.

In addition to the exterior design, the games, apps and other content have been developed based on the concept of color. The phone comes preinstalled with artwork from 100 different artists that users can enjoy as live wallpapers or via the gallery app. Users can also create their own home screen wallpaper or alarm background in combination with photos they themselves have captured, contributing to the phone's rich library of artwork.

The phone's packaging and accompanying welcome card both feature the same kind of colorful artwork design. The welcome card comes with an augmented reality marker, and by pointing the smartphone's camera at the card, users can enjoy a special surprise performance.

2. Complimentary access to over 30,000 videos, TV dramas, applications and other content Users can gain complimentary access to a wide range of content, including video content from Disney Cinema, such as Cinderella and Pocahontas(4), as well as a selection of programs from the BS 258 Dlife TV channel, which delivers popular overseas dramas and cartoons, including Desperate Housewives(5). Users can also download and enjoy their favorite content - such as live wallpapers, Deco-mail materials, Deco-mail pictograms and limited edition(6) Disney Mobile on docomo educational apps for kids - from Disney Market.

3. Full range of high-spec capabilities With the F-03F's 2,600 mAh battery, customers can use the phone for over two days(2) without worrying about battery life. The phone also supports high-speed recharging(7), which is convenient for quickly charging up the phone after forgetting to plug it into the charger the prior evening or to quickly top up the battery. Without the cradle holder attachment, the handset can be charged even inside a smartphone case(8), eliminating the hassle of having to remove the phone from your favorite case before charging.

Other popular features include a 2.2 GHz quad-core CPU, a switch-enabled fingerprint sensor, infrared communications, and Osaifu-Keitai.

4. Greater convenience with Human Centric capabilities that only Fujitsu can offer The smartphone is equipped with Super Clear mode, which automatically adjusts the brightness and contrast of the screen for optimal visibility - even if the display is under direct sunlight and difficult to read - and an engine that prevents the display from turning off while the phone is being held. Through features such as Touch Lock Mode, which temporarily blocks touch operations even if the screen is touched for easy viewing of videos with kids, the handset delivers a level of convenience only found with Fujitsu.

Glossary and Notes 1 Complimentary access: Free membership registration at Disney Market is required. Disney Market registration requires a sp mode contract (315 yen/month). Users may incur additional packet communications charges. Data traffic is heavy when accessing content, so bandwidth speed caps can be triggered relatively quickly. Since it is difficult to view video content with limited bandwidth, a wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) is recommended. Fee-based applications are available to enjoy certain game options.

2 Over two days: Battery life under normal smartphone usage conditions (browsing the web and using applications for about 80 minutes per day) according to research conducted by Fujitsu. Depending on the actual usage conditions (continuous phone calls, downloading large movies, etc.), battery performance may be shorter. For further details, visit Fujitsu's website.

3 Water-resistant technology: When using the smartphone, please ensure that all covers (the covers for the SIM and SD card slots) are completely closed. To maintain water resistance, it is essential to replace these parts at least once every two years (sold separately).

The IPX5 designation indicates that the mobile phone can normally function after being sprayed with water from a nozzle with a diameter of 6.3 mm at a rate of 12.5 liters per minute from a distance of approximately 3m for a period of at least 3 minutes. The IPX8 designation indicates that the mobile phone normally functions after being immersed in room-temperature tap water to a depth of 1.5 m for 30 minutes.

This model has been tested for operability under Fujitsu's examination standards for high-temperature conditions, such as usability in the bathing area. Take caution with the following: do not pour water with soap, shampoo or other bath agents on the smartphone. Do not attempt to drop the smartphone in, or spray it with, warm/hot water. If it is accidentally dropped in warm/hot water, retrieve it immediately. Do not use the smartphone for long periods of time in places with high moisture levels. After use, remove the smartphone from the bathing area. Do not allow warm/hot water from a shower to be directly sprayed on the smartphone. Do not use the smartphone in a sauna. Do not suddenly carry the smartphone from cold outdoor temperatures into a hot bathing area. Allow the smartphone to first warm up to regular room temperatures. Do not recharge the smartphone's battery in a bathing area.

4 Cinderella and Pocahontas: Availability planned for March 2014. Pocahontas will be available in February 2014.

5 Desperate Housewives: Available titles are subject to change.

6 Limited edition Disney Mobile: Only available to Disney Mobile on docomo smartphone users. Free membership registration at Disney Market is required. Disney Market registration requires a sp mode contract (315 yen/month). Users may incur additional packet communications charges.

7 High-speed recharging: An AC adapter 04 (sold separately) is required. 'High-speed recharging' refers to the ability to charge at least 1,200mAh in 60 minutes, as measured from the time the message 'Please charge' is displayed on the smartphone, and reflects a 125% improvement in efficiency compared to the use of AC adapter 03.

8 Charging even when inside a smartphone case: Only applicable to cases that are labeled 'compatible with F-03F cradle holder.'
