In praise of Japanese cell phones


A Newsweek reporter just spent a summer in Japan, and he’s come back completely enthused with his Japanese cell phone. No argument here; when I was in Tokyo in 2003, getting a phone with way more features than any North American model consisted of spending 3000 yen (about $35 or so) and getting calls charged to my credit card. And this was a low-end phone, though it handily beat anything we had at the time in Canada. Gambatte keitai, I sez!
