(keitai-l) Re: KDDI cdma 1x active usage

my impression is that people buy 1x phones because there are no
new non-1x handsets.  so I'd think that the traffic generated by 1x
and non-1x users are not that different, if you take into count that
people who use old handsets usually have less budget (so that I will
discount any figure that says new service or handset feature creates
new traffic, only because the first users are mostly high-end).

and contrary to the wide user acceptance of picture mail and other
new services, the generated revenue isn't so high as one might
think.  it's true for both au/KDDI and J-Phone.  an average user
sends more than 4 text messages a day and receives more than 6,
while he only sends one picture every 5 days, and more infrequently
uses GPS (does anyone have GPS statistics?).

I often feel sorry that while au/KDDI and J-Phone provide so great
services, they haven't got any rich as DoCoMo and haven't increased
their market share significantly.

btw, any comment on T08 w/ QVGA display?
