NTT DOCOMO is gearing for a big event on or after November 12 when it will launch its 2010 winter-2011 spring product lineup of 28 gadgets in 72 colors, reportedly “the largest and most diverse collection of models ever released by DOCOMO”. The lineup will include a selection of FOMA 3G handsets in four user-segmented series, smartphones, data terminals for DOCOMO’s upcoming Xi (read ‘Crossy’) LTE extra-high-speed service, and more.

The company has revealed that the new line-up will rounded out by:

  • Smartphones equipped for obile-wallet (Osaifu-Keitai) functions and viewing ‘one-segment’ mobile digital terrestrial television.
  • FOMA handsets featuring enhanced functionality, full-spec cameras, customizable designs, embedded projector (one model) and much more.
  • Two data terminals for the Xi-brand Long Term Evolution (LTE) service that DOCOMO will launch on December 24 as the extra-high-speed successor to 3G.
  • The eco-friendly TOUCH WOOD mobile phone with a natural wooden body made from trees culled during forest-thinning operations.
  • Wi-Fi mini-router and 3G-enabled photo frame.

DOCOMO also noted there will be 11 waterproof models, 3 with Wi-Fi router capability, 10 with touchscreens, 9 that shoot high-definition video and 5 that shoot Full HD. So, there is definitely a lot to look forward to in terms of what these new gadgets may be capable of offering.

The company seemed particularly excited about its smartphone models equipped with mobile wallet functions. These phones essentially come with an application for checking credit balances and usage histories of services for e-money, credit cards, coupons, ticket, membership ID and reward cards. The new range of smartphones will also incorporate:

  • A downloader for Evernote, a notetaking app that archives text, images and other data/content for convenient online viewing and searching via the user’s multiple devices, such as PC and smartphone.
  • An i-concier menu of personalized concierge-like services.
