CommunicAsia 2010 - NTT docomo's Booth

NTT docomo's Booth

One of Japan's biggest telcos in Japan, NTT docomo, has a booth right here at CommunicAsia 2010. Located right next to Samsung's booth, it's a booth that should not be missed and you'll be hard pressed to do so thanks to all the pretty booth girls but more importantly, the really cool phones on display. You may have heard of these legendary phones that come packed with awesome features that no other phone in the market has, and you wouldn't be far off.

In fact, it was a phone that drew our attention to the booth and not the ladies at their booth. Last seen at MWC 2010 in Barcelona, docomo's separable phone, the F-04B. Feast your eyes on this wondrous phone as you can split the device in two, make calls from both devices, or connect them together to use as a single unit. There's even an optional projector unit that you can connect to phone to use it to watch videos on the wall.

Besides the seperable phone, docomo also had smartphones on display, sourced from various vendors but rebranded with docomo's logo. We spotted RIM's Blackberry devices, Sony's XEPERIA 10 and even a WinMo 6.5 phone that well, probably won't be long in the market once Windows Phone 7 launches. Besides smartphones, we also spotted phones that feature designs by famous designers - including a Kate Spade phone that should please the ladies.

Last but not least, you have phones designed for video recording - and while the western world in general are gasping in awe of having a phone capable of recording in HD at 1280 x 720p, docomo already has a few phones available that can do Full HD recording at 1920 x 1080p and they look pretty darn good to boot. We also spotted phones which can capture still images at higher than 13MP resolutions!

NTT docomo's booth is the place to be check out all the coolest Japanese phones.

docomo has an i-Concierge service that basically uses GPS to know where you are and provide information that you may need. Seems pretty cool, but yet also stalker-ish.

We mentioned docomo's seperation phone (the Fujitsu made  F-04B) earlier on, and this is what it looks like. If you're worried about loosing one half of the phone, don't worry, you can locate the other half by just pressing two buttons on the unit with you.

When combined, the phone does feel a little thick but hey, it's two phones in one.

Among the sea of smartphones spotted at docomo's booth was this WinMo 6.5 based handphone.

If you already have a Kate Spade bag, how about a gorgeous Kate Spade phone to complete the set? Heck, it even has a push button to flip the top of the phone open - similar to some of Panasonic's old phones while they were still in the mobile phone business.

These phones are capable of recording and playing Full HD video clips, and the output quality of the demo clips looked pretty good. They can also capture photo stills higher than 13MP resolution. Perhaps it's as sign of times to come for the compact DV-camera business.

We also spotted this Android based phone, the Lynx SH-10B from Sharp that looks like it could give mini-tablet devices from Fujitsu a run for their money. Great for bloggers who want to blog away from the computer!
