In year 2001, the Japanese Wireless Operator NTT DoCoMo started offeringÂ world's first 3G service.Â Most of the world was very skeptical about the success ofÂ 3G networks.Â Analysts declared it as the most riskiest endeavour ever taken by any wireless operator in the world. MostÂ questioned why would anybody buy an expensive handsetÂ and play with a new interfaceÂ with an unknown technology and an equally unwanted application. Not many had an internet connection to their computers, and why would some one need an internet connection on the cell phone.
Most probably you are not an exception. You might be just one of them askingÂ similar if not same questions.Â Why would any body want to use Mobile to access internet? What the heck is about ringtones?
And the rest is history.Â Â We believe, it is by far the most memorable and defining parts in the history of Mobile.Â Today,Â We assume that most of you haveÂ some sort of answers to most of those questions.Â NTT DoCoMo and its spectacular "i-Mode" have successfully created a new world of Mobile users, who love to do every thingÂ on their Mobiles.Â Â Right from accessing email to paying billsÂ at a shop. Along the way, they have completely changed, what people call the traditionl way. For example, most people in Japan even stop wearing watches, almost an 100 years tradition.Â They started using Mobile as their watch, timer, calendar and organizer. That is just a simple example of how Japanese redefined their lifestyle around the Mobile.
We call it The Cellular Life Style, a life style apart. Some love to call it Mobile2.0. We don't argue.
The rest of the world,Â Â took their own sweet timeÂ toÂ really graspÂ what happened andÂ as you can see they have recently startedÂ moving in the direction. Technically, 3G is becoming a reality in the rest of the world too. EitherÂ already deployed orÂ in trials now and will be deployed pretty soon.Â Â
