Tokyo Podcast 6: Mobile in Japan
On this show Anthony talks to his former co-host of Bangkok Podcast, Greg Jorgensen about the flooding situation in Bangkok. Many parts of Thailand are currently under water and it would seem even the government officials are unsure if the flood waters are going to hit Bangkok or not. Greg gives us a local perspective on how the floods are affecting life in Bangkok.
I also talk to Paul Papadimitriou who runs a website covering the mobile phone industry in Japan. We talk about the recently released Apple iPhone 4S and how Apple’s business model has caused quite a stir in the Japanese mobile market. We also touch on the news that KDDI/Au is now selling the iPhone 4S and thus breaking the iPhone monopoly that was held by SoftBank for many years.
