There was a report on TV just now about how the Infobar phones from AU have become quite popular, especially the Nishikigoi model (red and white, with a bit of blue, like the fish). It’s pretty much sold out everywhere in Tokyo. I’ve decided against getting one because of the form factor. Although I think it’s a beautiful thing, I always keep my phone in my front pants pocket, and the Infobar phones are just too long. Actually, I’ve been thinking about switching from AU to Vodafone (formely J-Phone) lately, mostly because Vodafone offers full support in English, including manuals. Their rates also seem very competitive with what I presently get at AU.
