NTT FOMA Video Phone

NTT DoCoMo late Thursday took advantage of its home country's mobile broadband to launch the FOMA video telephone. The device connects to NTT's FOMA-based cellular Internet to deliver video calls on a 7-inch touchscreen that also doubles as the main interface for dialing. The system is made for the elderly or sick who may need to show their physical condition to a doctor, NTT says. A wireless remote bundled with the video terminal helps to this effect: a single red button is pre-assigned to a given number so that an owner can quickly dial a number in case of an emergency.

The phone has just become available in Japan as of today for an unlisted price.
