NTT DoCoMo Releases 3G Big Brother Mobile

Watch out Japan, your healthy unhealthy addiction to porn is being curbed by NTT DoCoMo’s 3G FOMA F903iBSC(wtf) “business-use” mobile phone. The mobile is being launched in response to information leaks and non-work related use of corporate issued devices. NTT is really putting the squeeze on this one because the camera, external camera, USB/IR ports and e-wallet services are being nixed. The only working features are a limited phonebook that can only hold 101 contacts, e-mail, scheduler, data box (?), call log and memos, which are all retrievable if the handset is lost. Further security enhancements include a biometric swipe to unlock the phone once it’s been shut. Drops in Japan on March 19. Watch out Corporate America, we could be next.
