"From co-stars to friends" - denying that the romance has cooled?
Actor Tamaki Hiroshi (29) and model RINA (29) attended the product launch of NEC's new mobile range. At the end of the event, a reporter asked Tamaki "Who do you socialize with?" hinting at his relationship with actress Yoshitaka Yuriko. "I have no comment on that," he replied. The reporter continued "But you're getting along well?" Tamaki coolly answered, "From being just co-actors, the category has expanded to being friends."
One of the mobile phone models was a collaboration with fashion brand Samantha Thavasa. The 'N-01B' series (available for NTTdocomo) is inspired by nail art, on its interior as well as its exterior, with its characteristic sparkling illumination.
The 'N-02B' series (available for NTTdocomo) is equipped with a 28mm wide angle lens, 12.2 megapixel camera. It loads up in 0.8 seconds and has a lag time of 1.5 seconds between shots.
The 'N-03B' series (available for NTTdocomo) is waterproof and the exterior is coated with 'SCRATCH SHIELD', for long-lasting use.
The '940N' series (available for SoftBank) offers Wi-Fi compatibility and high-res screens for internet surfing.
The '740N' series (available for SoftBank), with its simple call and mail function buttons, are designed for children.
Regarding mails, Tamaki said, "I don't really use it." What about emailing pictures? "While filming in Europe, I saw a poster of someone with the 'Wish' pose, so I took a photo of that and sent it to DAIGO," he replied. Tamaki Hiroshi's CM will be on-air from mid December, while RINA will make her appeal through NEC's special site.
