au Rolls Out Summer 2015 Products and Services
In the first half of au's summer push, new products included 7 smartphones, 2 tablets, and a feature phone for summer 2015. The entire second half was all about Real Service. Just like NTT docomo's event the day before, au shortened the amount of time spent talking about gadgets.
Today, au announced the release of new Android 4.4 kids smartphone model called "miraie KYL23," which politely warns kids not to send derogatory words in a message. Digital nanny? Censor?
au is going to release new 4.5-inch full HD display smartphone with tricolor curvy aluminum body "INFOBAR A03", manufactured by Kyocera, in mid-February. It is very pretty.

au has announced the release of their new 2014 winter "isai" smartphone model - isai VL LGV31 - manufactured by LG.  It will be out for sale in early December.

Specs of isai VL LGV31 are based on the 2014 summer model isai FL LGL24, but the new model has improved main memory up to 3GB.
