As in my previous mails, I do think that non-Japanese phones lack the
little bits that makes Japanese phones great (.. for Japanese). But as
user of non-Japanese phone too, I find that phones sold in Europe are
generations ahead of Japanese phone in certain areas, e.g., computer
integration/connection (bluetooth/irda etc) and PC-like features (pc web
browser, pop/imap client etc).
Indeed, it seems that Japanese are happy enough without advanced
features in those areas. When customers happy and operators make money,
there is no reason to become advanced in those areas though..
