Example text

503i series handsets all contain Sun Micro−systems Java technology and full−colour displays. These features, in addition to the 16−voice ringing tones, offer the user an advanced handset for either business or pleasure. To describe i−mode so simply is to forget the strategy behind the service. It is important to examine in depth how NTT DoCoMo has been able to put this service together and drive its success. When looking at i−mode’s success, one must first consider the stakeholders involved. The value chain, or rather value map, for a successful wireless Internet service is composed of a mixture of players.

Another key success factor of i−mode has been a marketing strategy that sells the services rather than the box. That is, i−mode marketing focuses on what the user can do rather than what technology is being used. Posters and commercials never used the word “Internet” or “web” but rather focused on services such as transferring money with mobile banking or airline reservations. Every effort is taken to show how easy i−mode is for anyone to use, through media campaigns and sales tools for users.

As already discussed, the i−mode display 34 is not always the best device to present products for purchase. The PlayStation could offer this better experience, and provide an easy to use interface for ordering. The i−mode phone and packet network becomes the transmission network and also a device for customer relationship management, allowing shoppers to check on the status of orders, answer questionnaires and provide other useful marketing data.
