Fujitsu Introduces Waterproof And Rotating Slide-Screen Mobile Phone F-06B


New docomo PRIME series F-06B mobile phone with a 13.2 megapixel camera capable of recording Full Hi-Vision movies.

Fujitsu today announced that its new docomo PRIME series F-06B mobile phone will be available in Japan from NTT DOCOMO, Inc. beginning June 9, 2010.

The F-06B is Fujitsu’s first rotating slide-screen mobile phone to be water-resistant (IPX5/IPX7/IPX8). The phone is equipped with a 13.2 megapixel camera capable of recording Full Hi-Vision movies, as well as a large, easy-to-use 3.5" touchscreen display that allows users to comfortably navigate menus and view captured photos. In addition, the F-06B features Wi-Fi tethering capability that enables it to be used as a wireless LAN access point for easily linking PCs and portable gaming devices to the Internet, as well as a full-featured electronic multimedia dictionary containing full versions of Kojien and other dictionaries.

The F-06B is a water-resistant mobile phone that boasts unprecedented high functionality and performance which will satisfy the needs of PRIME series users.

Background:
With the release of the F-09A in June 2009, Fujitsu introduced the rotating (yoko-motion) slide screen as the latest technology in the evolution of mobile phones. As Fujitsu’s first water-resistant rotating slide-screen mobile phone, the F-06B combines three different user modes—a closed touch screen mode that allows users to quickly access information, a sliding mode that gives users convenient access to the keypad that they are used to, and a dynamic horizontal-screen mode that allows users to enjoy Internet and TV contents.

To make the most of its 13.2 megapixel camera, the new mobile phone is equipped with the Milbeaut Mobile image-processing engine and capable of recording Full Hi-Vision video footage (1,920×1,080 resolution) that is equivalent to videos taken by a digital video camera. In addition, the F-06B comes with a variety of useful new functions that rival those of digital cameras, including a "Best Shot Select" feature, a smooth slow-motion video recording function, and a "Wide-angle Flash" feature. The "Best Shot Select" feature captures seven continuous photographs with a single press of the shutter and automatically selects the best out of these seven captured images.


The mobile phone incorporates additional features such as a large 3.5" touchscreen display with an improved response time, Wi-Fi tethering capability that enables the phone to be used as a wireless LAN access point for easily linking PCs and portable gaming devices to the Internet, as well as a full-featured electronic multimedia dictionary that contains dictionary data from 28 different reference books (22 dictionaries + 6 sectoral search volumes), including full versions of Kojien, English-Japanese Dictionary for the General Reader, and Shin Kangorin.

The new mobile phone’s design features a distinctive arc frame that, when combined with the phone’s water-resistance and slim form factor, makes for a stylish end result. The F-06B is available in three colors: white, black, and cyan.
