The mobile phone can also connect to a wireless LAN access point in client mode, thereby enabling convenient high-speed Internet browsing.
Without having to connect to a wireless router, F-LINK allows users to transfer data between a PC and a mobile phone or between two mobile phones. Photographs, movies, office documents, and other data files stored on the mobile phone can be wirelessly shared with a PC.
Wireless LAN printing(7)
Users can wirelessly print captured photos using wireless LAN-compatible printers made by Canon and Epson. As downloaded fonts are also supported when printing a letter, users can compose postcards that fit their personalities.
7. Provides convenient lifestyle support through cutting-edge sensor technologies (human centric feature)
AR-enabled location radar
When the user simply points F-02D at a surrounding retail establishment, it will display information about the store in the form of various icons. Through collaboration with Tabelog®, Gourmet Navigator®, and Hot Pepper® restaurant review websites, users can search for nearby restaurants by keyword or rating.
Temperature and humidity index checker and wallpaper content
The mobile phone can display temperature and humidity information measured by its built-in temperature and humidity sensors, in addition to the temperature and humidity indices and advice provided by the Japan Weather Association. This data is also linked to the wallpaper images of F-02D, with the facial expressions and clothing of the weather mascot changing depending on the weather.
“Super HAKKIRI VOICE (extra-clear voice) 3” and “PITTARI VOICE (exact voice)”
In addition to “Super HAKKIRI VOICE 3,” which makes the receiver easier to hear in a crowded environment, the phone also employs “PITTARI VOICE” to adjust the handset’s volume to an optimum level based on the user’s body movements, such as when walking or running.
“Super Double Microphone”
F-02D features greatly-improved noise canceling performance, ensuring that the user’s voice is transmitted clearly.
8. Full-featured security for strict privacy protection
The handset has a built-in fingerprint sensor that is resistant to water and dust. By recording the user’s fingerprint in advance, the mobile phone identifies its owner through fingerprint authentication, in lieu of having to type in a 4-8 digit password.
This security feature provides peace of mind by enabling information about designated individuals or groups to be kept hidden. When an e-mail or a phone message arrives from an individual whose communications have been designated as secret, the user is notified instead through the phone’s battery icon. In addition, the user is able to choose whether or not to enable the pattern recognition function of the phone’s predictive text input capabilities when the privacy mode feature is turned off.
microSD™ password protection(8)
A password can be configured for the mobile phone’s microSD™ card (sold separately) or microSDHC™ card (sold separately). Therefore, even if the handset is lost or stolen and the card is removed, it will not be able to be read on another PC or mobile phone, thereby reducing the remote risk of important personal information being leaked.
Automatic keypad lock
The mobile phone is equipped with two lock features: a “closed lock”, which can lock the keypad and touch-based operations each time the handset is closed; and a “screen-off lock,” which can lock the keypad and touch-based operations once the screen has been off for a certain period of time.
