  Japanese mobile industry ponders Galapagos Effect
Thursday, March 10, 2011
  Summary Japan has a super-powerful mobile ecosystem worth billions, brimming with futuristic technologies, business models, and experiences that the world wants to emulate. But is it a model or an anomaly? And does it only exist because it was incubated in isolation, and is it now so unique that it cannot be replicated overseas? This is known as the Galapagos effect, and its gone mainstream in the media and especially as a metaphor for whats happening in the Japan mobile industry. In any case, the Galapagos factor is not necessarily all bad, even if it is for real. If it didnt exist, we would have no idea what was coming. And its actually kind of trendy. Sharp even used it t0 brand their newest 3D-screened mobile phone, the GALAPAGOS 003SH9 (which incidentally is driven by the alien Android platform). And if you are lucky enough to live on Galapagos, you can enjoy the latest Galapagos technology, like eyeglasses-less 3D mobile phones, a year before everybody else. (gilesrichter.com)

  NTT DoCoMo CEO: 3G poised to take off in U.S.
Wednesday, November 23, 2005
  Summary Recent consolidation among commercial wireless operators in the U.S. will set the stage for next-generation, or 3G, wireless networks to proliferate in the U.S., said Nobuharu Ono, president and CEO of NTT DoCoMo USA, a subsidiary of Japans largest wireless carrier, speaking at the Radio Club of Americas annual awards banquet on Friday. Ono credited U.S. vendors with wireless innovations such as Wi-Fi and WiMAX, but said their impact is up for debate. He also noted that the U.S. trails far behind Japan in the development of 3G networks and services, which NTT DoCoMo pioneered with the development of its iMODE platform. Such services are extremely popular in Japan, said Ono, who reported that 17 million of NTT DoCoMos subscribers in that country are using 3G handsets. That number is expected to grow to about 23.5 million, which would represent about half of the carriers subscriber base, Ono said. However, he added that the better economics resulting from the mergers would make it more feasible for the three mega-carriers to invest in next-generation networks. The stage is set for the U.S. to once again be a leader in the development of wireless technology, he said. It will be interesting to see how fast 3G services take off now in the U.S. (mrtmag.com)

  Japan gets a 2nd chance at global phone market
Saturday, November 19, 2005
  Summary Cellphones here have cash chips that let shoppers swipe them at the register like debit cards. They have crisp color screens for watching television shows and music videos. They have full-fledged Web browsers, and they even have fingerprint readers and cameras with face-recognition software that locks up a phone if an unwanted stranger tries to use it. Interested in getting one? Good luck. You essentially can’t buy one outside Japan. And that is a problem, not just for consumers in the rest of the world but also for Japanese companies that have flooded the world with sophisticated consumer electronics from flat panel televisions to digital cameras - but not cellphones. Somehow, they failed to look overseas for years, even as sales in Japan soared. Then, when those sales slowed in the late 1990s, it was in many ways too late: Nokia, Motorola and Samsung had already sewn up world markets. (IHT)

  Is DoCoMos AT&T bid a bluff?
Wednesday, January 28, 2004
  Summary The Japanese mobile group is giving every impression that it wants to buy the $30 billion US wireless group, in which it already has a 17 percent stake. Thats certainly the right tactic to force a good price from other bidders. But DoCoMo must be careful not to fall for its own propaganda. The Japanese group cannot afford to pay more for ATTW than Cingular Wireless, another U.S. operator that can extract more synergies as this would be a home-market deal. DoCoMo's tactics are pretty clear. It is going out of its way to present itself as a credible bidder. The group has waived its right to be consulted on the auction, thereby freeing itself up to bid. And it has retained Goldman Sachs, which advised it on its initial investment, to advise it on the ATTW auction. (CNN Money)  
 
   
  DoCoMo keen on AT & T
Wednesday, January 28, 2004
  Summary NTT DoCoMo Inc of Japan has stepped forward as the first potential buyer of AT & T Wireless Inc to formally acknowledge its interest, increasing the likelihood that Cingular Wireless may encounter a bidding war to acquire the third largest US cell phone company. The Japanese wireless company, which already owns 16% of AT & T Wireless, also disclosed in a federal filing that AT & T Wireless had apparently set a deadline of Feb 13 for any would-be acquirers to submit offers. In a statement, DoCoMo said it was temporarily waiving its rights under a prior agreement as a major AT & T Wireless investor to be advised and consulted on any proposed transaction between AT & T Wireless and another company that would alter DoCoMos ownership interest. Like Cingular and Vodafone plc of Britain, another rumoured acquirer, DoCoMo has chosen the same technological path as AT & T Wireless, a factor that makes the latter an attractive merger partner for all three of those suitors.

  Cell-Phone Makers Target Larger Slice of Chinese Market
Tuesday, October 28, 2003
  Summary Japanese cellular phone companies are accelerating efforts to improve their presence in China. Japanese makers’ struggle stems in part from the fact that China has adopted the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) and Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) standards used widely in Europe and the US, respectively, as its cellular phone communications standards, not the Personal Digital Cellular (PDC) standard used in Japan. However, Japanese companies’ fortunes are likely to improve once China begins rolling out the third-generation cellular phone system in 2005, since the country is expected to include the Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (W-CDMA) standard used in both Japan and Europe as one of the communications standards for the advanced cellular phone system.

  Vodafone, DoCoMo will not launch 3G ’until it works’
Friday, October 17, 2003
  Summary Europe - In the debate over the future for 3G, we seemed in mid-2003 to have reached a consensus: 3G was rolling out at last, especially the CDMA2000 variants; it was less attractive to users and operators than had been hoped, and was moving slowly, but it would definitely become a major force within a couple more years. Now 3 has experienced further setbacks in its deployment and Vodafone says it will not launch 3G "until it works", with the implication that this may be some way off, while DoCoMo is putting a 10-year timeframe on 3G ubiquity. In the mean time, GPRS and EDGE are taking on roles that were never envisaged for them and IP-based next generation services are creeping up behind. The bets on 3G ever repaying the investment that has been made in it remain firmly off the table. (The Register)

  Global Hit Products from Japan: China’s Case
Thursday, December 19, 2002
  Summary The income gap between rich and poor people is enormous in China. But its huge population means that there is a sizeable and significant market in targeting the top-level income bracket rather than a broad range of Chinese people. In fact, some high-end products have launched in China ahead of Japan, and have proved to be hot sellers. This week, Nikkei Business presents a case study involving Matsushita Communication Industrial Co., Ltd., which is now creating a market in China for camera-equipped mobile phones.

Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn, desperate and lost on the Ulonga-Bora River, rip pieces of wood off the little steamer and use them to fuel the vessel’s engine. Today’s telecom companies, struggling to survive one of the greatest busts in business history, are slashing prices below cost and selling precious assets. "Neither one is a long-term survival strategy," says Stephan Beckert, research director at TeleGeography Inc., a Washington consultant. More than a cyclical downturn, what they’re experiencing is a full-blown industrial depression. "This is an unprecedented period," says Lucent Chief Executive Pat Russo. (Business Week)

  Wooing U.S. Cell Users With Color
Thursday, September 26, 2002
  Summary Hitachi, which makes cell phones for Japan’s second-largest cell-phone service provider KDDI, introduced its first mobile phone in the United States. The phone, which resembles the Web-enabled i-mode phones released in Japan two years ago by NTT DoCoMo, could persuade Americans -- typically slower to adopt new mobile technologies than consumers in Asia and Europe -- that do-everything phones are the way to go. The Hitachi P300, on sale at Sprint PCS stores for $300, weighs a mere 3.6 ounces, but has a relatively large color screen that accommodates downloaded photographs and screen savers. The phone offers Web access, POP3 e-mail access, an address book, a global positioning system (GPS) chip for location-based services, a personal organizer, built-in speakerphone and polyphonic ring tones.

  Q. Which is the biggest mobile phone operator in the world?
Thursday, September 5, 2002
  Summary Vodafone has been toppled as the world’s largest mobile carrier, measured purely in terms of individual users. The latest figures from telecoms market research specialist EMC put China Mobile’s total subscriber base at 123 million. Vodafone’s combined international customer figures weigh in at just over the 100 million mark by the end of June this year. The figures themselves mean little - for one thing, Vodafone also has a presence in what will easily be the world’s largest single mobile market - but may affect company marketing itself as the ’World’s Largest Mobile Community’. Also in the top five, in third place, is T-Mobile, followed by China Unicom, which has 30 per cent market share in China, and NTT DoCoMo, which holds stakes in operators in Western Europe as well as its home network in Japan.

  Japan-style mobile phones services catching on in Europe
Wednesday, September 4, 2002
  Summary Mobile phones that enable users to hook up to the internet and surf the web, send e-mails and photo messages are already all the rage in Japan, and analysts now predict they are about to take Europe by storm too. "They seem to have caught on in Europe, based on the early indicators," Karri Rinta, a telecom analyst with Evli Bank in Helsinki, told AFP. Germany’s T-Mobile, one of the pioneers of these services in Europe, recently released its first user statistics which showed that each subscriber sent an average of 25 photo messages per month from his mobile phone. "It’s very hard to see that it won’t be a success, and by the end of 2004 the number of registered MMS users in Europe should pass the 100 million mark," said Erkki Vesola of Conventum Securities.

  China Unicom to put Access i-mode Browser on 3G cdma2000 1x
Sunday, August 25, 2002
  Summary

Access of Japan will support no. 2 Chinese mobile operator China Unicom (50 million subscribers) to implement its suite of software products in handsets used for mobile Internet services. Access will provide the "NetFront" browser software for viewing contents on the Internet, as well as e-mail software based on the Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP). The software products will be shipped to several makers in charge of producing and delivering cellular phones to China Unicom. The software will deployed on phones conforming to "cdma2000 1x" developed by U.S.-based Qualcomm Inc.
(Nikkei New Media)

Editor's Comment: This is a significant coup for Access, the long-established Japanese non-PC device software company that became globally known when its compact browser was used on i-mode phones on DoCoMo's PDC network, and which has since made inroads into international mobile markets. In Europe, Access has provided browsers for NEC and Toshiba handsets used by European i-mode services on GPRS networks. This China Unicom deal confirms Access' expansion both beyond Japan and i-mode, although it has already been providing its email software on cdma2000 handsets for KDDI in Japan. More broadly, it shows a Japanese mobile developer breaking into the China handset market, regarded as a promised land for huge growth in coming years.
