Why Read This Report

So it's no wonder that Europe's mobile operators and content and media firms wanting to enter the mobile channel look at the Japanese market to try to predict the future success — or lack thereof — of new mobile Internet services. But different market dynamics mean that successes in Japan are poor predictors of success in Europe. European mobile operators should focus on the needs of mobile users on the go: their desire to communicate and access to timely and location-relevant content.
