Motion controls at DoCoMo

Among other, previously-known products, Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo has announced a new phone with the unusual feature of motion control. Essentially unseen elsewhere in the industry, the sensor in the D904i allows users to play games much as they would on the Nintendo Wii, making simple gestures equivalent to real-world actions, like swinging a tennis racket. No mention has been made of a strap to prevent accidents.

Like other phones in the 904i series, the D also has the ability to be used with two different accounts. For an extra monthly fee of 945 yen ($8), a switch can select a second number and e-mail address, which might be used for purposes such as business, or preventing anyone but friends and family calling. The phone should arrive by June at an unspecified price. [via Reuters]
