    Default The worlds first Symbian^2 device to ship in Japan


    Symbian today announced that the Symbian^2 platform is being used in four of the latest models that were unveiled by NTT DOCOMO, INC on 18 May 2010: the docomo PRIME series F-06B, docomo STYLE series F-07B and docomo STYLE series F-08B, manufactured by Fujitsu Limited and the docomo PRIME series SH-07B, manufactured by Sharp Corporation. These models offer a range of advanced features including a 13.2 megapixel camera, full HD video recording and playback, Wi-Fi access point capability and waterproof body. The docomo STYLE series F-07B is the world’s first device based on the Symbian^2 platform in the market place, shipped in Japan on 21 May.

    Symbian^2 was the first version of the platform to be released after the Symbian Foundation was established last year. It extends a number of features, including home screen support for embedded widgets, flexible support for different form factors and input methods, and an improved location event framework.
    "We are very pleased that the Symbian^2 platform is being used in the latest models manufactured by Fujitsu Limited and Sharp Corporation, and that the docomo STYLE series F-07B is the world’s first device based on the S^2 platform. Symbian^2 provides a wide range of compelling features for all Japanese mobile phone users to enjoy and benefit from. We will continue to promote the Symbian platform and its use in the Japanese mobile market," said Yoshimasa Miyake, Head of Symbian Foundation, Japan.
    "NTT DOCOMO, as one of the founder members of the Symbian Foundation, has brought strong enthusiasm to launch our devices based on Symbian^2, the first platform release since the foundation’s establishment. I’m delighted and proud that this joint effort, together with our partner companies and Symbian, has come to fruition and the FOMA 2010 summer models are now hitting the market. NTT DOCOMO will continue to put all of our efforts into collaborating with the Symbian Foundation and its member companies to provide our market with attractive products and services based on the Symbian platform," said Toshio Miki, Associate Senior Vice President, Managing Director of Communication Device Development Department, NTT DOCOMO, INC.
    "Fujitsu is very pleased to ship the first ever S^2-based mobile phone and also contribute to the Symbian Foundation as a board member. Building on this achievement and years of experience of developing on Symbian, Fujitsu will continue to develop the mobile phones which can meet the further demands of the market," said Minoru Sakata, President, Mobile Phones Unit, Fujitsu Limited.
    "Sharp is pleased to be making Symbian^2-based products available to Japanese mobile users. Sharp will cooperate with the Symbian Foundation in the future to create compelling mobile phones for Japanese users," said Shinsuke Yamamoto, Vice President & Division General Manager, Personal Communication Systems Division 1, Communication Systems Group, Sharp Corporation.
