This includes nine smartphones, the largest and most diverse collection of smartphones ever released by it, plus a variety of

The lineup also boasts the world’s first wirelessly chargeable smartphone. All Android smartphones, including the globally popular Xperia and GALAXY models, are preinstalled with Android 2.3.
The company says that its new lineup meets a broad range of needs for mobile users in Japan:
Numerous i-mode services and technologies available for smartphones, including Area Mail disaster information service, i-channel push-based information service and Melody Call ringback tones.
