Softbank announces Nokia N82 and E71 to be released in Japan

Softbank has announced today that 16 types of its "2008 winter model" cell phones will be released this winter. Among them, Nokia N82 will be on sale in the middle of this November and Nokia E71 in this December.

Nokia N82 is a tiny, light cell phone with a 5 Megapixels of digital camera where an auto-focused Carl-Zeiss Tessar lens and a Xenon flashlight are equipped. HSDPA data receptions, Bluetooth v2.0 (A2DP, HFP, HSP, DUN, BPP and more profiles), wireless LAN connections (IEEE802.11 b/g) are available. You can play YouTube motion videos with it. An internal GPS antenna is equipped and navigation is available using NAVITIME for Smartphone or Nokia Maps.

Nokia E71 is a business-use smartphone with a QWERTY-style full keyboard, covered with stainless steel. It's a bit smaller than Nokia E61, the previous model, and unlike E61, this has a 3.2-Megapixel camera. HSDPA connections and wireless LAN access are also available like N82.

These phones will be released from Softbank Mobile, but unlike other Japanese typical cell phones, they has no "Softbank" logos printed on their body.nor are they named any carrier-oriented model numbers like "X03NK". They are called just "Nokia N82" or "Nokia E71", like those sold in the rest of the world.

They attract me very much. I want to get at least one of them!

    Hi Joe,
    It’s true some of Japan’s cell phones are advanced, but most of them are useless if you carry it abroad… I want to use the same phone as that everybody in the world uses. Nokia is excellent, its user interface is perfect for me.

    I have an unlocked E71 now and I am with DoCoMo. I have the mopera plan but do not know how to configure the settings to use it on the phone.
    Do you know how to do this??

    At first, do you have the “mopera U” plan? You need “mopera U”, not the simple “mopera” plan. If you have the mopera U plan, you already have your own username and password sent from DoCoMo upon application. For data communications with your E71, configure your access point in Connection Settings like this:
    Data bearer: Packet data
    Access point name:
    User name: (the username sent from DoCoMo)
    Prompt password: Yes
    Password: (the password sent from DoCoMo)
    Authentication: Secure
    Homepage: (n/a)
    Hope I can help you.
