Sure. Because it's the *only* "real 3g videophone service." However,
there are two other 3G services in Japan that don't offer that
videophone service, both of which are far, far more popular. This tells
me that videophone is not a big 3g application.
And that doesn't even count all the people sticking with PDC because of
the better handsets. If videophone were so great, wouldn't people be
willing to live with a slightly larger handset to get it? Because, in
the year before the 900 series came out, the FOMA handsets were not all
that bad, though definitely not as nice as the PDC handsets.
