J-Phone, the Japanese unit of Britain's Vodafone Group Plc, said it planned to launch handsets that enable users to watch TV programs on their mobile phone screens by the end of the year.

J-Phone is expected to become the first Japanese mobile phone operator to launch such a product as rivals NTT DoCoMo Inc and KDDI Corp have not announced any specific timetable to introduce such sets commercially.

Japanese electronics conglomerate NEC Corp will supply the new handsets, a J-Phone spokesman said. (AP)
