- by admin
JAPAN — Japan has a new mobile phone.
The company that created the device has filed for a patent application, which is likely to be granted within weeks, according to the Nikkei Asian Review.
And while it’s not yet clear what the Japanese company is calling its “cell phone,” its patent suggests it’s called the Z-Band, a kind of hybrid phone that uses wireless signals to communicate.
The patent application describes the ZBand as a “mobile cellular telephone” that uses “a variety of antennas, antennas and other components to provide a high-quality, portable cellular service.”
It’s unclear how much the Z Band will cost, but it’s expected to be a device that uses a phone’s internal speaker and cellular radio to provide wireless communication.
Japanese officials say that’s the first step in a broader effort to make the country a global hub for mobile phones.
With the ZBands, Japan has the potential to become a “global smartphone network,” said Hiroshi Kawa, president of the Japan Mobile Telecommunications Association, in a statement.
