World's Lightest 7-inch Tablet (*1)

  • The "MEDIAS TAB UL N-08D" Tablet from docomo (reference exhibit) The MEDIAS TAB UL N-08D is the world's lightest tablet weighing only 249g (0.549lb) and measuring 7.9mm in thickness. An amazingly light body and powerful features create new use cases and user experiences. With a high-fidelity piezo actuator (*2) that supports haptics technologies, the MEDIAS TAB UL N-08D delivers a dramatically better user experience in playing games and typing on a virtual keyboard. Two divided windows are useful for searching for and comparing information.

Cloud Communicator "LT-L"

The LT-L is a slim, lightweight 10.1-inch tablet with rich functions. It features speedy operations thanks to the 1.5GHz dual-core CPU and a wide viewing angle with a 10.1-inch high-resolution LCD. Enhanced security functions and an HDMI output terminal that enables connectivity to projectors for sharp presentations make the LT-L well suited for business use.

The Latest Smartphones (reference exhibit)

  1. "MEDIAS W N-05E" from the "docomo NEXT series" of smartphones
    • This two-screen design enables both the convenience of portability and the visibility of a large, 5.6-inch display when opened.
      When closed, the MEDIAS W N-05E becomes a compact, 4.3-inch display smartphone that supports high-speed LTE "Xi" (crossy) communications. The easy-to-use "W browser," enabled by the dual-screen design, allows users to browse two websites at the same time or to view a single site or application across both screens, such as a map or news site.

  2. "MEDIAS Χ N-04E" from the "docomo with series" of smartphones
    • The MEDIAS Χ N-04E features a 4.7-inch organic HD EL display and 1.5GHz quad-core CPU while supporting high-speed LTE "Xi" (crossy) communications. This high-spec model also features a 13.1 million pixel camera, blue light cut control and wireless charging.

  3. "MEDIAS U N-02E" from the "docomo with series" of smartphones
    • The MEDIAS U N-02E features "PLUSPROOF(TM)," which provides 5 points protection against shock and scratching, while supporting high-speed LTE "Xi" (crossy) communications. The adoption of a reinforced glass provides this model with superior resistance to scratches and the impacts from falling (*3). Furthermore, the rear-cover of these devices feature a new coating that is resistant to fingerprints and dirt, while supporting a waterproof level of (IPX5/8) and a dust-proof level of (IP5X).
