...I don't think (my very personal experience) that any company
can only exist by providing advertisements. To copy a concept what
was not really an success on the Internet (see all these closed
companys with the business model 'advertisements will pay my site')
and bring it to a very small screen on a PERSONAL device (you don't
share your mobile phone, aren't you?) can not have any success.
But I am interested what happens, because Japan is famous for being
different and maybe people see it as a fashion and start to collect
advertisement banners ;)
Let's wait and see. At least Dentsu and NTT get their revenue
