Japanese Blackberry update June 28, 2006Posted by fukumimi in electronics, IT, Japan, Mobile.
Following up from a previous post, where I wondered why DoCoMo is bothering to sell Blackberrys in Japan without Japanese language support, I came across the DoCoMo USA site where they offer a mail client with full Japanese language support. The Namimail software allows Japanese read/write support on Blackberry.
So if DoCoMo is providing this service in the US, why aren’t they offering the same software on Japanese market devices? It would seem to be a no brainer.
Is it a symptom of a large bureaucratic organisation where one division doesn’t have a clue about what another division is doing?
