Redesigned Version of Raku-Raku SMART PHONE to be Sold in France

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) TOKYO, JAPAN -- NTT DOCOMO, INC. announced today that a redesigned version of DOCOMO's Raku-Raku ("easy-easy") SMART PHONE F-12D will be sold in the French market, targeted at seniors, beginning in June.

DOCOMO launched the Raku-Raku SMART PHONE F-12D in Japan in August 2012 as its first smartphone for users who are unfamiliar with touchscreen operations. Features such as extra-legible menus and on-screen keys with tactile feedback make the phone especially handy for first-time smartphone users.

The F-12D will be modified for the European market and will be sold by Orange as the "STYLISTIC S01." DOCOMO, which collaborates with device manufacturers to develop diverse handsets with innovative features, developed the F-12D model together with manufacturer Fujitsu Limited. It is the first smartphone in DOCOMO's Raku-Raku Series, which also has introduced several easy-to-use feature phones over the years.

DOCOMO will continue to explore synergistic opportunities with Orange and other mobile operators to enhance user experience and satisfaction through innovative products and services. The smartphone's launch in France will be the latest example in a long series of successive initiatives to realize this vision.
