This mobile runs on Android ICS operating system. This means that the manufacturer is capable of summarizing the nationwide radiation measuring results for its users, made by all of its devices.
A fierce competition is to be expected between the different manufactures, given that besides the Softbank operated Pantone, the DoCoMo operated CEATEC is to be expected, along with other inventions.
