In addition, Java®-based i-appli™ applications offer a 400K scratch pad and up to 100K for content/archiving (compared to 200K and 30K, respectively, in existing FOMA models).

The 900i series, the most advanced series of FOMA i-mode® mobile phones ever released, features a Macromedia® Flash™-equipped browser, HTML e-mail and avatar-capable videophone.
