Japan's Mobile Internet Paves the Way for 3G Services The emergence of nearly 50 million users of web-enabled cell phones in Japan over the past two years has demonstrated the power of mobile Internet as a new driver of IT and consumer markets. This dynamic mobile Internet is now entering a new phase with the deployment in Japan of Imt-2000, which offers high-speed transmission ranging from 384kpbs to 2Mps, and broadened integration with a variety of other devices and media channels. Since early 2000, industry leaders in Japan have mapped and analyzed the future directions of new 3G business models in an exclusive research group hosted by Japan's former Government Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications and composed of representatives from the top wireless operators (NTT DoCoMo, Kddi, and J-Phone), content and application developers, device makers, and the Mobile Content Forum (MCF). Now MCF has compiled and edited their major findings and made them available in a new 100-page, English-language report featuring over 25 tables, titled TheFuture of Japan'S Mobile Internet Under Imt-2000. Value of the Report This report should be read by professionals inside and outside of the telecommunications sectors who want to: - understand the direction of Next-Generation mobile Internet services in the world's leading wireless data market - indentify opportunities and challenges created by Imt-2000 - learn how key industry players and regulators in Japan view 3G - acquire authoritative background on business models, specifications and platforms for 3G wireless data in Japan
