The mobile market is vastly different when it comes to Japan. They have products and audience of a completely different pedigree. Personally, I am more accustomed to the U.S. mobile standards, but every time I am exposed to the Japanese mobile culture, I can't help to be memorized by its glitzy design and specifications. For the Japanese, a mobile phone is a reflection of a person's individuality. Beyond functionality, the design has to be sleeky and classy. Take a look at the Sony Ericsson W62S.
The design itself is magnificent. With a simple brushed stainless finish, It just looks ages ahead of what is available in our market. The W62S happens to be a GSM phone, I wonder if this can be used in the US?
