At this point, we're beginning to wonder whether NTT DoCoMo can keep track of its own lineup, let alone its customers -- because we sure as heck can't. They've gone ahead and announced a mind-boggling eleven new handsets this week, all members of the new FOMA 903i series. The members of the series include entries from NEC, Sharp, Panasonic, Mitsubishi, and Sony Ericsson, with three (the D903iTV, P903iTV, and SH903iTV) supporting digital television, and another two rocking HSDPA. Interestingly, Panasonic's P903i supports a new security mechanism that's capable of locking the phone when it's taken a certain distance from an RFID card stored in the owner's wallet, handbag, or clothing -- while it won't prevent your phone from being stolen, it's not a bad idea for stopping the baddies from placing international calls on it.
