KDDI's Love Mate comes in Orange and Blue

KDDI Love Mate Orange

Whether they'll ever actually be sold to the general public or not isn't clear, but KDDI is showing off a new Windows Mobile for Pocket PC-powered handheld called the Love Mate that's designed to help visitors to get around at the Aichi World Expo 2005 which begins in Japan next March. The Love Mate sports a 520MHz processor, 128MB of RAM, 64MB of ROM, a 2.8-inch LCD screen, and a built-in VGA quality digital camera, and actually comes in two versions, the Orange (pictured at right), which has 3G cellphone capability, 802.11b WiFi, Bluetooth, and English-language software so we won't be hopelessly lost when we hit the show next year. The Blue skips the 3G stuff, and the WiFi has to be added via a CompactFlash card (which seems totally weird, but whatever).
