(2007-06-18) Bray Japan Mobile

Tim Bray notes a couple interesting bits about the Japan Ese Mobile market. Back to phones now. First of all, yours won't work there. GSM? Hah. There are traces of CDMA I hear, but basically, the only phone that works in Japan is a Japanese phone... I wasted some time trying to figure out how to get SMS going, but it turns out that EMail-on-the-phone came in so early in Japan, and was implemented well enough, that SMS is almost unheard of.
