Today the Japanese operator NTT DoCoMo has introduced new phone RADIDEN produced by Sony Ericsson Mobile Communication. The model is notable for its AM/FM and TV tuner.
The RADIDEN is made in an unusual design. The front panel has a 1.9” 160x128x65K TFT transflective screen, and the back side carries tuner control elements: 7 programmable buttons and a loud speaker. I’d note that you can use the tuner even when the phone is off.
The handset supports i-mode and e-mail client. Measuring 117x49x22 mm the RADIDEN weighs 122 g. It lasts for 320 hours standby, 120 minutes in talk mode, 20 hours in AM mode, 14 hours in FM mode and 13 hours in TV mode. Currently NTT DoCoMo RADIDEN represents a proto, and serial phones are expected this autumn.
