Pernah denger kata Keitai? Yup, itu adalah kata dalam bahasa Jepang untuk mobile phone atau handphone atau ponsel. Keitai selalu mencuri perhatian para pemerhati dan pencinta gadget dan ponsel. Kenapa? Karena pada umumnya punya desain yang cantik, dengan warna-warna segar, layar yang lebar dan ciamik (baca: jernih, sejernih kristal), dan fitur-fitur nan canggih. Banyak orang bilang kalau teknologi Keitai jauh meninggalkan teknologi ponsel yang beredar di negara-negara selain Jepang, bahkan Eropa sekalipun.

Sayangnya keitai kebanyakan hanya bisa dipakai di Jepang, itu karena frekuensi jaringan yang dipakai di sana berbeda dengan negara lain. Selain itu, meskipun beberapa tahun terakhir beberapa jenis keitai sudah bisa digunakan di luar Jepang − dengan unlock software atau menggunakan xsim/hypersim ataupun secara resmi dijual seperti Sharp yang beberapa waktu “buka warung” di Indonesia − banyak fitur canggih dari keitai yang tidak bisa berfungsi di luar Jepang. Jadinya meskipun ponsel itu aslinya super canggih, di luar Jepang berubah jadi ponsel “bego” yang cuma bisa sms dan telepon saja. Hanya beberapa (sedikit) yang fitur 3G dan internetnya bisa digunakan, itupun tipe-tipe lama. Tapi yang pasti kita masih bisa menikmati kejernihan layarnya untuk menikmati musik dan video.

Di bulan Oktober ini, au KDDI bekerja sama dengan Sony Ericsson merilis tiga buah ponsel terbaru, yaitu Urbano Barone, S002, dan Bravia Phone U1.

Karena kepanjangan kalau dimuat di sini semua, setiap ponsel di atas nanti akan dibuatin post tersendiri aja ya…

Setelah rumornya muncul beberapa waktu lalu, akhirnya Sony Ericsson secara resmi mengumumkan 2 handphone baru untuk operator au by KDDI Jepang : Premier3 Walkman Phone dan S001 Cyber-shot Phone.

Seperti biasa, kedua handphone tersebut hanya diperuntukkan bagi operator tertentu di Jepang, dalam hal ini au by KDDI, dan keduanya memiliki spesifikasi yang bisa dimasukkan ke dalam golongan handphone kelas atas.

Jauh berbeda dengan kebanyakan handphone Jepang yang pada umumnya memiliki ukuran yang besar dengan layar super lebar dan memanjang dengan resolusi yang sangat tinggi — serta fitur canggih yang jauh melampaui teknologi selular di belahan dunia lain — kali ini Sony Ericsson menghadirkan sesuatu yang lain khusus untuk operator au by KDDI di Jepang : XMini Walkman® Phone.

Sesuai dengan namanya, XMini ini memiliki ukuran super mini, yaitu hanya sebesar 44 × 75 × 18 mm. Di dalam badan handphone super mini ini terdapat layar yang hanya berukuran 1.8 inchi (sangat kecil untuk ukuran handphone Jepang) dengan resolusi QVGA atau 240×320 pixel (standar rata-rata handphone non-Jepang tetapi termasuk low-end untuk ukuran handphone Jepang). Fitur Walkman yang tertanam di dalamnya mengikuti standar Walkman terbaru dari Sony Ericsson yaitu Clear Sound Experience dengan touch button untuk mengoperasikan menu-menu pada mode Walkman-nya.

XMini tersedia dalam 4 pilihan warna menarik : Green x Blue, Purple x Pink, White x Turquoise, dan Black x Black.

Dari Engadget Mobile, berita tentang announcement/pengumuman koleksi musim panas au KDDI, sebuah operator selular berbasis jaringan CDMA di Jepang : KDDI au announces Summer 2008 collection.

KDDI au announces Summer 2008 collection

In Japan, carriers tend to release new models in giant, blockbuster batches — seasonal “collections” that leave the rest of the world green with envy. KDDI au is no exception, having just announced its predictably spectacular Summer 2008 lineup with entrants from Kyocera, Sony Ericsson, Sanyo, Sharp, Toshiba, Casio, and Korea’s Pantech. Here’s the rundown:
  • Hitachi Wooo W62H. KDDI is emphasizing this one’s video and 3D gaming capabilities, both of which are assisted by the presence of a 2-way hinge for flipping out the screen in a landscape orientation. Comes in blue, silver, and black.
  • Sharp W62SH. The FM transmitter’s kinda cool, and the three-inch WVGA screen should be perfect for watching Spiderman 2, which comes bundled with the phone. Purple, white, and gold are the color choices.
  • Sanyo W63SA. Global CDMA roaming and an integrated English-Japanese dictionary makes this one a solid choice for world travelers. Get this one in red, silver, or black.
  • Toshiba Sportio. As the name implies, this one’s all about burnin’ those calories with an integrated calorie counter. The candybar form factor is a refreshing change of pace in the lineup, but too bad about that QVGA display! Five colors to choose from here: orange, black, white, green, and red.
  • Casio G’zOne W62CA. Like its counterparts on Verizon, the W62CA is designed to take a beating without falling apart. It’s impact resistant and waterproof, features a compass, thermometer, and GPS, and naturally, one-seg TV. Get it in green, black, or white.
  • Sanyo W64SA. This fashionable flip has some crazy light effects to go along with its crazy selection of colors, but other than that, it seems pretty pedestrian. If you can call a 2.8-inch WVGA display “pedestrian.” It’s available in pink, white, yellow, and black.
  • Sony Ericsson Full Change re. The WQVGA display is one metric ton of weak sauce, but as the “Full Change” name suggests, five individual pieces can be removed from the front, back, and top of the phone to create a totally customized handset. Shell choices include white, pink, green, orange, and silver.
  • Toshiba W62T. Seriously, what’s up with all this WQVGA garbage? The W62T appears destined for the midrange, though the 3.2 megapixel camera ain’t bad. Colors for this one are gold, pink, and black.
  • Kyocera W64K. Possibly leading up the bottom end of the collection, the W64K rocks a WQVGA display and a weak 2 megapixel cam. We see “basic capabilities” mentioned a couple times in the translated description for it, so that says pretty much all we need to know. Pink and gold are the only color options here.
  • Kyocera W62K. Whoa, and we thought the W64K was low end! 1.3 megapixel cam, QVGA (yeah, that’s right, QVGA, not WQVGA) display. ‘Nuff said. Beige, blue, and black are the choices here.
  • Kyocera W63K. The W63K candybar is just 10.8mm thick, but we’re still not sure that we can forgive it for a meager 1.3 megapixel camera. Kyocera’s seriously dragging here, in case you haven’t noticed the trend. Black, burgundy, and beige.
  • Pantech W62PT. The only phone in the lineup sourced from a non-Japanese manufacturer, the Pantech’s nothing to get too excited about with a QVGA display, but the presence of quick dial buttons directly below the screen indicates that this one’s designed for folks that are looking for a simple, easy-to-use phone that’s just enough to make voice calls — and ironically, it’s still better than a good percentage of the phones you’ll find elsewhere in the world. It’ll come in silver, gold, and pink.
