Yes imode mail was designed to compete with the others as was
ishot. But as far as I know from the Japanese people I know i-mode's
email has won! And from experience using it, it is the most reliable,
fast and stable. J-Phone's long mail sometimes
takes hours or days to receive! And I lose so many connections, sometimes
I cannot connect with Jsky mail. It drives me insane.... all those
retries.... when i-mode gets it in one try!
TuKa _at_mail and ezweb (and AU too) are better than Jsky stuff
(less retires on needed).... but i-mode is very reliable from a users standpoint
(usually no retries).
FOMA is not all of i-mode mail. Its a subset. And I haven't tried it
yet because not many people are using it.... but that may change.
