We reported last month that Japan will soon be getting the Sony Xperia AX, a variant of the Xperia V that boasts some Japan-specific features. If you’ve been keeping track of its release, you’ll be pleased to know that the Xperia AX is now on sale in the country via NTT DoCoMo.
With any text-based message, we can always use online translators or application translators to get things done. However, there is still a need to translate live interactions. NTT DoCoMo is looking to do just that with a new app that translates phone calls and video chats in real time.
A few days ago we told you that NTT DoCoMo will offer its subscribers in Japan two new Samsung smartphones, the Galaxy Note 2 and the Galaxy S3 Alpha, with the latter being an updated version of the regular Galaxy S3.
If you’re counting down the days until November (or December) comes, Sony has released promo videos of the Xperia AX — the Japanese variant of Xperia V — to help ease your wait.
The first ever gadget to actually sport an IGZO display is a much less glamorous one than we’d have expected, although it’s still worth a quick look. The Sharp Aquos Phone Zeta SH-02E has just been unveiled by NTT DoCoMo as part of the Japanese carrier’s fall line-up of smartphones, and, aside from the high-res low power screen, it also holds other aces up its sleeve.
NTT DoCoMo is introducing a few flagship handsets to the Japanese market. We earlier wrote about the LG Optimus G L-01E, but if you’re a Samsung loyalist, we have some good news for you. The Japanese carrier is introducing two new handsets, particularly the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 phablet and an updated Galaxy S3 flagship smartphone.
Japan will be the first market to officially carry the LG Optimus G L-01 E. NTT DoCoMo is already offering the phone on pre-order, with the carrier planning to ship to folks in the land of the rising sun starting October 19.
NTT DoCoMo has demo’d their newest Grip UI. It has sensors on the side of a device that detects your hands and how you’re holding your phone. Based on that, it will launch apps or open settings. This is an amazing feature that could change how we use smart phones.
NTT DoCoMo has begun addressing the unique translation problems that occur with Japanese speakers. Because the Japanese language is so different, it makes calls from Japan very difficult. This is because most of Japan’s citizens have to learn other languages in order to properly communicate via phone calls. Now that NTT DoCoMo provides Japanese translation, we are one step closer to having seamless communication throughout the world.
The Medias Tab UL from NTT DoCoMo is the lightest Android tablet on the market, beating out the heavier Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD.
