DoCoMo: 3G expansion plans

DoCoMo is to increase its 3G network faster than first planned. This decision contrasts with many European operators which are holding back 3G investment following questions over its commercial viability. DoCoMo does not seem to share these concerns. The strategy could be risky if subscription rates remain sluggish, but it will increase its advantage over rivals.<BR /><BR />

DoCoMo: two phones for the price of one

It's an ugly solution to a serious problem for the Japanese operator: backward-compatible dual-mode handsets are not yet available. To make a call outside city centers, customers must instead use the 2G phone. This could erode the first-to-market 3G operators' advantages - both for DoCoMo in Japan, and if the problems continue, Hutchison in Europe.

Fujitsu/Sagem: grab your partners

The deal will allow the two companies to cut the cost of 3G development. But while both firms will certainly benefit, the advantages will be short lived as other manufacturers follow suit. Consolidation in this industry seems inevitable and companies trying to 'go it alone' will find the market an increasingly difficult place to survive.

KPN Mobile: the second coming isn't pre-paid

While i-mode is being hailed as the 'second coming' for European mobile data services, various obstacles may deter its uptake. In particular, KPN is not rolling out a pay-as-you-go service - instead, it requires a subscription. This is likely to deter young users, whose viral marketing has been one of the factors driving the service's Japanese success.

McDonald's: drop in for a byte

The fast food giant is said to have signed a deal with Internet company Softbank to install wireless network links in nearly 4,000 of its restaurants. However, while it is increasingly popular for cafes and restaurants to offer Internet services, the trend looks unlikely to spread to McDonald's outlets in Europe.
