The wide maturity gap between the wireless markets in the U.S. and Japan was highlighted Friday during NTT DoCoMo USA CEO Nobuharu Ono’s keynote address at CeBIT America, during which he spotlighted an array of popular Japanese DoCoMo products that won’t be arriving in the U.S. any time soon.
Ono also highlighted in his talk several new gadgets that take advantage of DoCoMo’s offerings. One hot seller is the company’s Wristomo watch-phone. When NTT DoCoMo offered the first batch of 1,000 Wristomos for sale online, the lot sold out in 10 minutes, Ono said. The second lot of 1,000 offered lasted just six minutes.
