Vodafone KK to launch first FeliCa phone in 2006

22 Nov 2005

Vodafone KK, Japan’s third largest mobile operator, has completed the development of a new 3G handset – the 804SH – made in collaboration with Sharp. The new phone has an embedded FeliCa smartcard to support the Vodafone live! FeliCa service, which enables customers to use their handsets for purchasing transport tickets and other goods. The new handset is also Vodafone’s first motion sensitive phone, meaning that customers can enjoy new gaming experiences by moving the handset in corresponding directions.
