DoCoMo, Orange to procure smartphone from Sharp


NTT DoCoMo INC will procure an Android smartphone from Sharp Corporation together with Orange, one of the world’s leading telecommunications operators, marking the first time for an overseas operator to deploy a DoCoMo smartphone.


The smartphone model, a 3D-capable handset initially developed for DoCoMo and sold as the AQUOS PHONE SH-12C in Japan, was redesigned for the European market and named the AQUOS PHONE SH80F. Orange will introduce the model in France from October as its first mobile device capable of converting images and videos from 2D to 3D in real time.


Kiyohito Nagata, senior vice president and managing director of strategic marketing for NTT DoCoMo, said, “We’re very proud of our relationship with Orange, which has made it possible to introduce this innovative 3D smartphone made by Sharp Corporation to the international market. DoCoMo will continue to work closely with Orange as part of a strategy to lead the global market with new and innovative products.”
