SonyEricsson’s Bravia phone announced for Japan

I still own a mobile phone (the old T610), but the newer models including the smartphones have not been impressing me much lately and it seemed to me as if they were doing what most mobile phone companies and telcoms are doing: targeting the teenager group.At first this seemed to have changed: SonyEriccson’s SO903iTV is going to be the first to include a 3″ display and offer some nice features, such as built in TV receiver with time-shifted recording options, a microSD for memory and a 2 megapixel . So this seems like a rich feature handset with a nice design by a decent company. But once again: the phone is to be released in Japan.

I have to wonder why it is that the Japanese market, a quite small one in fact, is so much more technologically advanced than for example our quite large European and American markets.

    It is because of the business model of the Japanese mobile phones.
    In Japan, the operating campany sells all of mobile phones as in it’s own brand.
    Users can buy the phones with discounted price because the operating campany want to get more users than oter competiters.

    It makes japanese mobile phones cheaper than it’s original price. Some times users can get it cheaper than the operating campany had paid to the maker.
    So, users can change their models of mobile phones more shorter term.

    Those facts make the japanese mobile phones more technologically advanced. But kept the price users have to pay for it lower.

    On the other hand, it is said that the monthly bill users have to pay for using the mobile phone is a little higher in Japan.
