martinharnevie is on a distinguished road
Just came from Japan. DoCoMo were having huge ads about it. Guess they lost a bit of face previously with the battery-life hickup. So this is their way of coming back.

In addition J-phone (Vodaphone) is launching GSM service in Japan on the 20 Dec. This means that the 7650s, P800 et al. will now compete with the i-mode. Will be interesting. On a more practical side, J-phone will finally introduce international roaming in Japan!!! Better late than never.

BTW, the i-mode phones will likely also work in South Korea.

BTW2: I was quite surprised to note that the chinese character Psion Revo (618c ??) is still promoted quite well by retailers in Hong Kong.

cheers from my Japan-Korea-Hong Kong trip.
