Fujitsu and NTT DoCoMo’s move to offer a new handset officially outside Japan was no accident. Other Japanese handset makers like Sharp, Kyocera and NEC are also eyeing to make good on sales of their notable handsets worldwide. This is a trend that has only started recently.
Just as Fujitsu’s F905i handset was announced in Taiwan, a Sharp counterpart in the form of the WX-T923 was also unveiled, also through Far EasTone Telecommunications. Kyocera will be gunning for other global markets while NEC is reportedly planning its own strategy and will start conquering mobile world starting from Hong Kong.
Other Japan-based handset vendors like Casio might also follow the trend, but so far those identified above are the only one’s who’ve been verified. In any case, this is good news for mobile enthusiasts since more regions will get the chance to experience the high-tech telephony being provided by Japanese handsets, and at the same time a boon for the Japanese mobile phone industry.
