Japanese mobiles are not so different from their foreign counterparts 
in terms of usability: basically bad with occasional flashes of 
brilliance, Sony's side-mounted jog-dial address book falling into the 
later group.

I think familiarity is all that makes current mobiles usable and 
unfortunately, familiarity as opposed to good usability is not just 
confined to mobile devices: how many of you will shutdown your computer 
today by pressing the "start" button? ;)
