(keitai-l) Re: Rispondi: Re: Nokia and Motorola to enter the Japanese market with Vodafone

Giovanni: you have not seen, because you do not live in Japan, I guess.
But there are a lot of "business focused" keitai in Japan. For
example, the guy who comes to do the electricity bill has a specialized
keitai for electriciy billing linked to the central electricity bill
computer etc etc etc etc

it's not that there are no such keitais, it's more that foreign
media don't look at all the details of Japan.

Also: there is a difference in the tax laws. In Europe generally the
taxes are HUGE, so that people in Europe get company cars, company
keitais etc etc etc. In Japan people often buy these things from
their own pocket...
