In case you’ve forgotten, Disney launched Android smartphones in Japan last year. Apparently Disney’s venture is a resounding success because they are set to collaborate with mobile carrier NTT DoCoMo and form the Disney Mobile on DoCoMo brand. Disney will start off with two new Android-powered handsets launching over the next couple of months and features exclusive content from Disney such as full-length animations and games. The first device is the F-08D which is a “luxury smartphone” featuring a 4.3-inch HD LCD display, dual cameras and a snappy 1.2Ghz dual-core TI OMAP 4430 CPU. The F-08D will be available in pink or white next month with preorders opening up February 17th. The next device is the P-05D, which features a slim 7.8mm thick frame, rear camera and 4.3-inch OLED screen all powered by a dual-core 1Ghz processor that will launch sometime in March. Hit the break for the full presser.
Special customer benefits also will be offered from this spring in cooperation with Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea, where DOCOMO is an official corporate sponsor.
Pre-orders for the “Disney Mobile on docomo F-08D” model scheduled for release in late February will be accepted at docomo shops from February 17. Pre-orders for the Disney Mobile on docomo P-05D model scheduled for release in March will be announced later.
