Emobile Launches Mobile Broadband
Emobile launched its so-called “Mobile Broadband” services, 16-months after the ministry awarded their new license, at an opening ceremony held at Bic Camera’s Yurakucho store in Tokyo this weekend. The company put two debut models on sale: its keyboard-equipped EM ONE terminal by Sharp (details here), which allows users to connect at HSDPA speed and view 1Seg digital tv broadcasting, and a card-type model for laptop computers.
The firm’s dataonly communication service is fixed at a flat rate of 5,980 yen per month and they reportedly have received about 17,000 advance applications for its services as of March 30 although they don’t plan to launch voice communication services until March next year. Via: Mainichi Daily
