NTT DoCoMo announced its new phone DOLCE SL SH902iSL which has IrSimple built-in. IrSimple allows faster data transmission speeds (at least 4 to 10 times faster than current InfraRed).
The phone features a 2.4-inch QVGA 260K color TFT main display, a 10inch STN sub-display, a 1.3 Megapixel CMOS camera, miniSD card slot. The phone measures 109x51x23mm, weighs 120 g and is available in ‘Extra Black’, ‘Precious Red’, and ‘Elegance White’ colors.
Main Features of IrSimple
* Faster data transmission speeds (at least 4 to 10 times faster than existing protocols)
* Improved efficiency of the protocol by reducing latency until a receiver/transmitter pair is ready to communicate
* Implementing IrSimple can be done by adding and/or upgrading software for existing IrDA protocols
* Backward compatibility with existing IrDA-enabled communications incorporated into devices or equipment
