|Japan's NTT DoCoMo, Google to upgrade i-mode service [money.cnn.com] |
Japan's biggest cellular phone operator, NTT DoCoMo Inc, will incorporate Internet search and e-mail features from Google Inc into its i-mode mobile Internet service, the Nikkei reported on Tuesday.

KDDI's AU service tied up with Google some time ago, but their market reach is still behind that of NTT DoCoMo. This will be a large step into Japan's mobile search market for Google.
SoftBank, which owns Yahoo Japan, has their phones tied into Yahoo for portal and search. However they're a distinct #3 in the mobile phone market.
This is a real interesting development. It is hard to believe but a lot of people will be introduced to Google through Docomo.
