WX320K uses a simple and refined design that highlights its cool aluminum paneled texture. The handset comes equipped with the Opera browser, and, with its small and light body and clear sound that PHS is proudly offering, was developed for users who primarily use calls and e-mails with WILLCOM's flat-rate voice plan. To support comfortable communication services, WX320K supports the advanced W-OAM PHS communication standard. This allows for stable calling, and makes the Opera browser even more convenient and easier to use due to accelerated data communication speed. WX320K also supports an RSS reader to automatically gather and allow aggregate checking of new information from news sites and blogs.


[Main features of WX320K]
1. Design with a high quality feel
WX320K realizes a design with the cool texture of metal and a high quality feel by using aluminum for the rear panel. With its slim and simple form, WX320K is stylish to carry with and can be comfortably used by people of any age who primarily use calls and e-mails with WILLCOM's flat-rate voice plan. Three color variations are available: Silver (S), with a cool and intellectual glint, passionate Red (R) that maximizes the alumite shine, and a fine Black (K) with an adult composure.

2. Equipped with advanced Opera browser for more comfortable and convenient use
As with previous models, WX320K comes equipped with the Opera browser for viewing PC websites. Thanks to high-speed data communication with the 4x packet system, even sites with a high volume of information can be accessed comfortably and stress-free. WX320K also supports an RSS reader, to automatically gather and allow aggregate checking of new information from news sites and blogs.

3. Support for W-OAM
WX320K supports W-OAM, which achieves higher-speed and more comfortable communication in response to signal conditions. In areas where W-OAM is supported, data communication speeds of up to approximately 1.6 times greater than conventional one will be achieved. Even in areas such as indoors or between tall buildings where signal has difficulty in reaching, because signal reach is improved, call stability can be improved.
