DoCoMo and Vodafone have been assessed by ABI Research as occupying the “sweet spot” of “Market Innovation and Market Implementation,” in their latest Mobile Operator Performance Matrix, with high ratings on a range of indicators: CAPEX spend per user; non-voice revenue contribution; number and utility of applications and service deployments; EBITDA; share of the global subscriber market; and EBITDA margin.
“Both of these companies have demonstrated remarkable cycles of product and service innovation that continue to underpin their market reach or implementation,” said Jake Saunders, Asia-Pacific Research Director. “Not only are these two companies gearing up to exploit consumer market applications such as mobile TV, music downloads and navigational services, but also m-payment (e.g., m-Pesa for Vodafone and FeliCa for NTT DoCoMo) and enterprise applications (e.g., Vodafone’s and NTT DoCoMo’s RIM BlackBerry enterprises email server service and NTT DoCoMo’s “DOKODESUKA bus” public bus tracking solution).”
Interesting in that DoCoMo’s Blackberry email service still does not allow for Kanji character input?
