- Thin, light and stylish clamshell body (approx. 14.8mm and 103g) available

Panasonic Mobile Communications Co., Ltd. (President: Yoshiaki Kushiki) announced that it has begun shipments of its “SoftBank 705P”, the first 3G / GSM handsets to SOFTBANK MOBILE Corp. The 705P is a thin, light and stylish handset (approx. 14.8mm and 103g) that provides enriched functions such as a high resolution 2.2-inch QVGA LCD and a 2 mega pixel camera. The handset contains an advanced and easy-to-use push opening button situated on the clamshell hinge. When the button is pressed, the handset automatically opens. Adopting a new processing method by which its mounting board is covered with resin mold, the handset body is strong in power outside like twist, enabling the handset to be compatible in high rigidity and thinness.

In addition to supporting Chaku-Uta Full® and digital comic service, the 705P is also compatible with the latest entertainment service like Near Chat and Near Games for instant messaging and multiplayer gaming with people nearby free of charge by using Bluetooth® technology for wireless short-range communications.
