//    Hi,
//
//
//    i think i-mode may have had a better start in europe if it was
//    concentrated on usability rather than multimedia. A slim stylish
//    folding phone with just a bright monochrome screen but
//    long battery
//    life may attract us germans more than that mostrous "multimedia
//    terminal" n21i.
//
//    A b/w screen would help to make clear that i-mode is not a weak
//    UMTS-preview but mainly a useful service.
//
//    However, while usefulness is a good sales argument and everyone
//    wants "business features", melody download is the killer
//    app (jamba
//    and yamaha are the most popular i-mode sites in germany). So MA-2
//    sound (or even MA-3, why not use the latest technology?) should be
//    on board but not be advertised as a key feature.
//
//
//    Another reason for the low subscription rates may be that stupid
//    elephant. It's embarrassing.
//
//
//    Cheers
//
//    Oliver
