It looks like things are looking good for Disney phones in Japan. In collaboration with NTT DoCoMo, the two companies are creating the Disney Mobile on DoCoMo brand. To start things off, two new phones will be launching under Disney Mobile on DoCoMo. The phones will be available in the next few months and will feature exclusive content from Disney such as movies, games, wallpapers, and more. Disney has partnered with Fujitsu and Panasonic to launch their first two phones, the F-08D and the P-05D.
The F-08D by Fujitsu features a 4.3-inch HD LCD display (720 x 1280), front and rear cameras, a fast 1.2GHz dual-core OMAP4430 processor. It will offered in both pink and white and will be available for pre-order on February 17.
The second phone, the P-05D by Panasonic, features a slim 7.8mm frame, a dual-core 1GHz processor, a 4.3-inch 540 x 960 resolution OLED display, and rear camera. The phone will also be waterproof and dustproof and will be compatible with Osaifu-Keitai’s mobile wallet services. The P-05D is expected to launch at some point in March.
Unfortunately, no information on pricing was made available. If you’re a big Disney fan, don’t count on any of these phones leaving the Japanese market. Your best of obtaining one will be to buy one unlocked directly from Japan.
