Three new 3G mobile phones from "au" are coming on the market in Japan in February.
The first is the compact and basic model A5518SA that carries a 1.3 megapixel camera, FM radio, infrared communication function, miniSD card slot and a dispersion type sound recognition function for "input by voice" (this is known as Hallo Messenger). The phone comes in 3 colors: passion red, raster white and smoke silver.
The second is the Sweets Pure series in colors fitting the sweet and candy image: macaron franboise, cafe cream, and boir chocola. One package comes with 4 different kinds of stickers to customize the handset appearance. The camera and IR function is the same as in the phone above, but it has some additional functions such as a Japanese-English and English-Japanese dictionary, security buzzer, mini light and so called teen‘s mode, which checks out whether the girlies are doing too much calling.
The third phone, A5520SA, is strictly for kids. It has a security alarm function. When the alarm is turned out, GPS mail is automatically sent to an adult's mobile phone, which is registered in advance. One color. They are all manufactured by Sanyo.
