NTTドコモは18日、東芝製の携帯端末「T―01A」の販売を一時停止すると発表した。ソフトウエアの不具合で、110番や119番などの緊急通報番号につながらない時があるため。販売済みの5万台のうち、約2万9千台の端末にも不具合がある。購入者にはドコモが連絡し、不具合を改善する。販売再開は未定。問い合わせは0120・456・090
NTT docomo announced on the 18th that it is temporarily suspending sales of the Toshiba T-01A handset. Due to a software problem, it may not be able to connect to emergency service numbers such as 110 and 119.  29,000 of the 50,000 handsets sold are affected.  Those who have purchased this handset should contact docomo for a fix.  Docomo has not determined when to resume sales.  Toll free contact number 0120-456-090.

The problem seems to be limited to handsets running Windows Mobile 6.1, though it does not seem to be a problem with Windows Mobile.  Another phone was similarly affected.
