KDDI and Okinawa Cellular will release the number pad equipped "INFOBAR C01" from the popular "INFOBAR" series in early February 2012.

The INFOBAR C01 takes the original "bar type" design concept of the initial "INFOBAR" and subsequent "INFOBAR 2" to the next level with smartphone capability. iidaUI, a popular user interface available on the "INFOBAR A01," has been optimized for the INFOBAR C01 and the physical design features a lightweight and compact body perfect for easy one-hand operation.

Also, in addition to coming with standard Japanese functions such as 1seg, Osaifu-Keitai®, infrared transmission capability, and e-mail (---@ezweb.ne.jp), the phones will be usable worldwide with CDMA, GSM, and GPRS compatibility.

These phones will also be compatible with a new and improved "Emergency E-mail Service," with tsunami warnings added to the emergency earthquake news flashes and disaster and shelter information.
