Archived report: this report was archived September 2005 and has not been updated. Though DoCoMo holds over 50% of the mobile market in Japan over its rivals KDDI and Vodafone K.K. (formerly J-Phone), KDDI dominates the 3G market into 2004 by a wide margin. Vodafone K.K., formerly known as J-Phone, continues to struggle in the 3G arena into 2005, despite the earlier success of camera-equipped cellular phones for its PDC service. To further open up the market, the government is considering doubling the number of mobile operators in Japan, with Softbank, eAccess and NTT Com showing interest in securing 3G licences. This report examines the main mobile operators in the vibrant Japanese mobile market.
