would just like to mention that there are also far less computers
at Japanese schools than in the West. that "helps" a lot because
the youth is the most important market segment for keitai.
beside the Web, DoCoMo never had SMS service for their PDC network.
that the booming of i-mode mail service was the one after long time
(behind competitors J-Phone and au/KDDI who both have GSM style SMS)
suppress of customer needs.
again I'd like to stress, as others already pointed out, that it was
not i-mode Web service but the second-grade i-mode mail service that
really won the market.
