Products & Services

TOKYO, JAPAN, May 28, 2007 --- NTT DoCoMo, Inc. and its eight regional subsidiaries today unveiled the third-generation (3G) FOMA™ SIMPURE™ L2 handset for users who prefer an easy-to-use model without highly sophisticated functions. The model was designed in collaboration with industrial/interior designer Gwenael Nicolas and handset manufacturer LG Electronics, Inc.

DoCoMo plans to release the new handset by the end of July.

As the latest model in the SIMPURE ("simple" and "pure") series, the SIMPURE L2 is a stylish and compact phone with convenient basic features. It can be used with DoCoMo's WORLD WING™ roaming service and works on W-CDMA, GSM and GPRS networks.

Designed chiefly by Tokyo-based French designer Gwenael Nicolas, whose works include UNIQLO's "Black Shop" flagship retail store and Nintendo's "Game Boy Advance" handheld videogame console, the SIMPURE L2 features a unique "curve & square" design that fits comfortably into the user's hand. The 17.6 mm slide-type handset features a stylish keypad with a layout for easy dialing.

The SIMPURE L2 will be displayed at the "Touch & Love DESIGN" exhibition jointly organized by LG Electronics Japan and the non-profit Design Association's "Tokyo Designer's Week" in the Galleria Atrium (B1 fl.) of Tokyo Midtown in Roppongi, Tokyo from July 3 to 8.
