This article focuses on the announcement of NTT DoCoMo Inc. regarding the release of its Motorola-made handset compatible with non-Japanese cellular networks and with its own 3G mobile network in the U.S. Other features include the ability to access HTML-based web sites. DoCoMo telephone browsers use I-mode, the company's mobile Internet platform, to access Internet sites. The announcement comes eight months after DoCoMo, Japan's largest carrier, said it was investing about $344 million over two years in Motorola and five other companies to develop advanced handset technologies compatible with Wideband Code Division Multiple Access.
