SHENZHEN, CHINA: Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd., a provider in telecommunication services leader, recently announced the launch of PhotoVision SoftBank HW001, its first 3G network-compatible digital photo frame in Japan.

Its built-in 3G communication function enables users to directly receive and auto-play pictures from handsets and PCs, as well as images received via MMS (multimedia messaging service) messages.

The HW001 is scheduled to be launched by Softbank Mobile in June, said a press release. The HW001 is equipped with a 7-inch WVGA (800 x 480 pixels) liquid-crystal display and allows users to instantly share their favorite pictures stored in digital cameras or handsets.

The digital photo frame can be connected to a 3G network via a SIM card. In addition, users can also start slide shows once the digital photo frame is switched on, without the need to configure any initial settings.

Its auto-play function enables users to view their pictures without having to press a single button, it added. With a simple yet sophisticated design that matches any interior, and easy-to-use touch buttons for an enhanced user experience, HW001 is an ideal gift for family and friends.

The digital photo frame can serve as a new mode of communication as its embedded tutorial and user-friendly functions make it possible for everyone, even beginners, to share photos instantly, and almost intuitively. Besides a SD card, the HW001 also has a 384MB built-in memory that can store up to 1,280 pictures (300KB in size).

The digital photo frame is available in black and white, with a Hello Kitty version, PhotoVision SoftBank HW001KT, to be released in Japan in end-July.

“We are very pleased to introduce a new visual communication mode to consumers in Japan through the launch of HW001, Huawei’s first 3G network-compatible digital photo frame,” said Yan Lida, managing director of Huawei Japan.

He added that the HW001 is a milestone in Huawei’s partnership with Softbank Mobile as they embark on new collaboration opportunities that go beyond mobile voice services.

They look forward to working with Softbank Mobile to deliver on their shared promise of providing innovative products that users can enjoy.
