(keitai-l) Re: DoCoMo's i-mode subs descreasing

My personal belief is I think AU is attracting a lot of people purely on the 
basis on chaku-uta service plus the "designer's KDDI" theme. Packaged 
together, I think this is more of an emotive marketing message that 
communicates well to ordinary people & thus makes AU more interesting 
compared to the other carriers. DoCoMo is looking a bit stale these days 
pushing the games angle again, which is a bit ironic since their Java 
environment hasn't progressed significantly since 504's release. Though this 
may change again when they so-called "high-volume" appli compatible handsets 
are released.

just my 2 yen's worth.

Regards

Michael.
