– PC connectivity to allow for synchronisation and backup of calendar and contact information

– Extended static stand-by time of approximately 310 hours (dynamic: approximately 240 hours)

– Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) audio compression to enable CD-quality sound with NTT DoCoMo’s i-motion video clip distribution service

Fujitsu continues to be at the forefront of the development of advanced mobile phones based on Symbian OS for 3G networks. Fujitsu is taking advantage of the growing worldwide acceptance and take up of Symbian OS as the industry standard platform for the creation of advanced differentiating technologies and applications as well as compelling mobile content and services.

Using Symbian OS – an architecture specifically designed for advanced mobile phones – has enabled Fujitsu to undertake rapid and flexible product development to meet the specific needs of customers.

David Levin, CEO, Symbian Ltd said:
“We are very pleased that Fujitsu has completed the F2102V, its latest product based on Symbian OS for NTT DoCoMo’s FOMA service. Fujitsu continues to be a leading Symbian partner in the world’s most advanced mobile phone market. Fujitsu’s latest product exploits the strengths of Symbian OS to create a highly differentiated, feature-rich mobile phone that can run compelling third party applications, content and services.”
