NTT DoCoMo plans on removing high-end functionality of its Mobile OS to accomodate international market

NTT DoCoMo plans on removing high-end functionality of its Mobile OS to accomodate international market

Sometimes less is more. NTT DoCoMo decided to strip down its mobile OS to allow manufacturers to develop in conjunction to international market needs. Many phone manufacturers such as Mitsubishi has pulled out from Japanese market due to over crowded players – and to focus on international market instead. By doing this, NTT DoCoMo allows manufacturers to export low cost handsets to exploding market such as China and Thailand. Many analysts see this trend will be followed by NTT DoCoMo’s competitors.

Apparently the PS3 version of the game is a bit buggy when it comes to multiplayer. It started with the fact that a large majority of game owners can’t even connect to the game servers to start a multiplayer online match.

This is a pretty solid corporate level device. It has PUSH email, a QWERTY keyboard, WiFi, GPS, a MicroSD Card Slot, and you can save some minutes by using the WiFi networks at your school, work, and/or home.

However, you get stuck with GPRS/EDGE for data when you aren’t near a WiFi network, which is more than sufficient for the integrated mail app, but internet surfing is likely to be abysmal. I must concur with Mr. Davies on this one, it is very nice to finally see a new BlackBerry that isn’t a Pearl and doesn’t have the words “Pearl” or “Curve” or “World Edition” in the title, I like it when already amazing devices return back to the basics.
