Description

NEC FOMA N900iG device supports tri-band GSM, UMTS and FOMA standards, has large 320 x 240 TFT display, 1.2 mega pixel main camera and QCIF sub-camera.

The phone's manual is around 605 pages, so as you can imagine we can not list all the functionality of this device. The main thing is that this is the first device to work on the tweaked Japanese network standard FOMA, UMTS (Europe)* and tri-mode GSM/GPRS.
*We are not 100% certain that the phone will have UMTS support. The manual mentions the following: Supported networks: In Japan: FOMA Out of Japan: 3G, GPRS, GSM

All the information here is PRELIMINARY is might be changed at any time!

  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
