New Tablets for 2014
At NTT docomo's 2014 summer rollout on May 14, in addition to the 6 new smartphones, 2 tablets were introduced.

The Aquos Pad (SH-06F), at 11cm, is paperbook-sized so that it's easy to be carried with one hand and you will be able to read e-books for a long time with less stress. The Xperia Z2 Tablet (SO-05F) looks remarkably beautiful. The view from the side is especially slick, metallic, and cool.

As a part of their research into wearable computing, Docomo are working with the possibility of pairing smartphones with head-mounted interfaces. At CEATEC 2013, they demonstrated a variety of situations where this technology could be utilized in the future.

NTT docomo today has announced that they are going to start providing a new service called Pet Fit for users' dogs sometime in March. You can remotely check how your dog is, maintain his daily health condition, and find out where he is when he's lost.
