Oh my...yes, I get work done. We earn even enough money
to have individual email addresses in our company and
there is no need to share it with somebody :)

Here is where your misunderstanding (and Carlos in private
mail) starts. You should read this list more carefully.

Since last december (!) the service M-Stage Visual is
available (announced in every detail in this list):
http://www.nttdocomo.co.jp/m_c/mstage/visual/home.html

Here is an english annoucement:
http://www.mobilemediajapan.com/newsdesk/m-stage-visual/

They build a special device called "Eggy" which is basically
a 64kbit (PHS) connected mobile streaming MPEG4 player.
You can choose content from 130 programs on 47 different channels.

This device is available in every DoCoMo shop and works
pretty much fine with a very good coverage even in trains
(PHS) and a very good frame rate on a TFT display.

See above. The Eggy is not a phone. So there is no need to
put it on your ear. You don't need to go to fancy shows to
see them, just buy it a any shop (they are all 500 meters),
done.

Don't mix your theoretical understanding of the situation
and the reality. The Eggy device is there, this is not a
prototype and it works *everytime* (everybody
can test this for free in the DoCoMo shops).

And now look at this picture of the official i-mode
menu of the new Panasonic:

On top you see an additional link to M-Stage Visual, which
is not there on other phones (yet).

Here is the M-Stage Visual Top Menu:

In case you missed this, Renfield described pretty much
how the M-Stage Visual service works *also* on the FOMA
phone:

...Japanese users enjoy this already on a 64kBit network
everyday.

Yesterday I saw a Japanese guy in the train and he had
a T-Shirt with the printed statement: "We are 5 years ahead
of our time". If I read your entertaining posts, I know he
is right.
