The media from Singapore, Malaysia and Taiwan were given a short tour at the DoCoMo Smartphone lounge inside the shin-yurakucho building where we see the Xperia Acro with the built-in retractable antenna for digital video/audio terrestrial broadcast. Depending on where you are in Japan, the number of channels received could be slightly different. The Xperia Acro is using the Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread OS though we did not find the option of Internet Tethering on the phone.

According to DoCoMo, they even have a chart of the various trendy and colorful smartphones that they recommend to female users. And needless to say, the upcoming Xperia Ray is one of the highly recommended on the list. Other phones for the ladies include the Sony Ericsson Xperia Acro, Samsung GALAXY S II, NEC MEDIAS WP, Sharp AQUOS phone f SH-13C, Fujitsu F-12C, Panasonic P07C and LG Optimus Bright.

We also spotted this "camera" (below pic) at the DoCoMo smartphone lounge, but it's not just a camera but it is a true blue camera phone. Yes, you can actually make phone call with this LG L-03C smartphone and also access the various Android widgets from its rear display.


This Sharp AQUOS SH-12C is a features a 4.2-inch qHD display and it can capture and display images and videos in 3D without the need of special glasses. Available in black and white, there are two 8-megapixel cameras at the rear for shooting 3D pictures and videos.
