Fujitsu ARROWS Kiss F-03D Android Phone Is Here for the Ladies

Fujitsu has just announced the upcoming availability of a rather unusual phone aimed at women, the Fujitsu ARROWS Kiss F-03D, which will be available in Japan beginning November 25.

However, the smartphone will be exclusively available through NTT DoCoMo carrier for a price that will disclosed in due time.

According to Fujitsu, the ARROWS Kiss F-03D is a “smartphone with 'gem-cut' buttons that sparkle like actual jewelry.”

Aside its 3.7-inch LCD WVGA touchscreen that supports 480 x 800 pixels resolution, the smartphone is delivered with a stylus that provides users with an alternative to touch-based control. In addition, the stylus makes it easier for user to write complex Japanese characters.

Even though this is a women-centric phone that looks more like a toy, it boasts an 8.1-megapixel rear photo snapper, as well as a secondary 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera.

Although the word “smartphone” is often used by Fujitsu when describing the ARROWS Kiss F-03D, there's no mention of Android or any other mobile operating system. However, the press shots show that this is indeed an Android device.

Fujitsu ARROWS Kiss F-03D comes with all sorts of services and special features that are so appealing for Japanese consumers. For example, the smartphone is delivered with one-segment TV broadcast, mobile wallet (Osaifu Keitai), and infrared communication function.

Furthermore, the device is water-resistant, but also retains the elegance needed to be tagged as a women-oriented fashionistas phone.

There's also a range of funny and useful apps, such as Beauty Body Clinic, which 'senses' and monitors the user's body posture and recommends stretching and training exercises. Sukkiri Alarm app wakes up users when it detects they are 'ready' by combining body movements and breathing patterns.

Furthermore, a pedometer is also included that graphically shows the number of steps users take daily and also offers health-related advices.

Most likely this one won't reach outside Japan, but it's an interesting handset overall.
