New Toshiba Sha-mail Wireless Phone

3rd February 2003

J-PHONE Co., Ltd. announced it will offer two new Sha-mail (picture messaging) handsets, the J-T09 by Toshiba and the J-SH010 by Sharp, for sale after the end of February 2003. Sha-mail is a service that enables users to send pictures as e-mail attachments.

The J-T09 features a 2.1-inch high-resolution poly-silicon TFT LCD, an embedded CCD mobile camera and comes packed with photography, picture editing and Sha-mail functions. In addition, users can read the full text of e-mails while the handset is closed using its large, 1-inch sub-display. Those requiring simple operation and large-size characters can be at ease using the "Simple Mode 2" interface. Text entry has also been made easy with the inclusion of "Mobile Rupo", which includes predictive entry functions and AI character conversion.

The J-SH010 features the mobile phone industry's largest 2.4-inch size "System LCD" for unsurpassed high quality resolution and imaging. Those who enjoy taking pictures will appreciate the J-SH010's highly sensitive built-in CCD camera for VGA and QVGA photography and a wide range of features have also been included to take advantage of the handset's QVGA display capability. Other convenient functions include a bar code reader and composer as well as a mobile light even brighter than those found in previous models.

With the addition of the J-T09 and J-SH010 to the J-PHONE lineup, there are now a total of 25 Sha-mail handsets*, thereby bringing the pleasures of Sha-mail to an even greater number of people.
Main Features of the J-T09 (Manufactured by Toshiba) 2.1-inch high-resolution poly-silicon TFT LCD and embedded CCD mobile camera
Images and text are easy to view with the J-T09's 144 x 176 pixel, 65,536 color, large-size 2.1-inch high resolution poly-silicon TFT LCD. The handset's 110,000 effective pixel CCD mobile camera excels at minimizing camera shake and vividly brings out the detail of photography subjects.

Full range of features for photography, picture editing and Sha-mail
The J-T09 brings even more enjoyment to Sha-mail by adding features such as 4x digital zoom, a motor drive mode for taking 4 shots in succession, camera settings for photo effects and editing functions like photo modification and frame or text insertion options. Furthermore, the J-T08 comes with a "One-touch Sha-mail" feature where after having taken a photo, users can send it as an e-mail attachment just by pressing the mail button. There are also other convenient Sha-mail functions such as "travel photography mode" where location and time can be inserted by pressing a button while taking a snap.

Large-size 1-inch sub-display for reading e-mail while phone is closed
The back of the J-T09 features a large-size, approximately 1-inch 65,536 color sub-display capable of displaying the time and wallpaper while on standby mode as well as the main text of incoming e-mails. If the user enters caller settings, the sub-display can also display corresponding images when there is an incoming call. In addition, the J-T09 comes with other convenient functions like a kitchen timer and a stopwatch.

"Simple Mode 2": an easy-to-use interface with large characters
The J-T09 comes with "Simple Mode 2", an interface that limits functions of the handset to only the essential ones, allowing people new to mobile phones and elders to use their handsets worry-free. Reading call notifications and function menus are made easy with a jumbo-size font exclusive to the interface. In addition, up to two numbers can be stored for dialing at one touch of a button.

"Mobile Rupo" with word prediction and AI character conversion for easy text entry
The J-T09 uses the "Mobile Rupo" system for text entry. When entering a character, users can choose from up to 10 options using the predictive text function. The AI character conversion feature is context sensitive and chooses the correct kanji (Chinese characters) for smooth text entry. For convenient e-mail composition, the J-T09 comes with a "personal dictionary" function that does intelligent kanji conversions based on past e-mails for up to five different correspondents.
