by: AdrianSeptember 18, 2012
Westerners sometimes get the feeling that the entire technology world revolves around them, but that’s not always true. Take GREE, for example, a hugely popular mobile social gaming giant over in Asia that is virtually unknown in the States and Europe.

Business-oriented Fujitsu Stylistic M532 tab to go on sale in Japan in early October for unknown price

by: AdrianSeptember 18, 2012
Before barely getting a chance to take a thorough look at the newly unveiled business-oriented Casio Paper Writer tablet, a new gadget with a similar target got introduced to the public. The Fujitsu Stylistic M532/EA4 will also focus on durability and functionality and will most likely limit itself to the Asian market, but, unlike the Paper Writer, it doesn’t seem to come with a lot of unique features or specs.

by: J. Angelo RacomaAugust 31, 2012
Apple may have won a sweep in its California patent infringement case lodged against South Korean Samsung Electronics.

HTC J ready to fly out of Japan to Taiwan

by: Bams SadewoAugust 20, 2012
Every now and then phone makers release a market-specific device that won’t see the light of day elsewhere – like the HTC J, a model that the Taiwanese only introduced for the Japanese smartphone market. It has been four months since the HTC J made its debut, and it looks like HTC has had a change of heart about the phone’s availability.

Sony Xperia GX to start selling today in Japan for $960 outright

by: AdrianAugust 9, 2012

We’ve been hearing quite a lot about the Xperia GX ever since May, but for some reason Sony has delayed the new phone’s launch a couple of times already. The high-end Japan-bound flagship smartphone is, however, finally supposed to start shipping today, although NTT DoCoMo is still listing it as “not available”.

If you’re a resident of the “Land of the Rising Sun” and you’re on the hunt for a spanking new phone with a lot of oomph and a cool design, you should keep a close eye on NTT DoCoMo’s website, because we’re betting that by the end of the day the GX will in fact show up as “available”.

In the meantime, we should tell you about [...]

Sony releases bizarre, but original Japanese Xperia GX/ Xperia SX commercials (video)

by: AdrianJuly 25, 2012

Sony is getting its high-end smartphone guns ready for the summer charge against Samsung and HTC and the first battle it has to fight is a local one. However, the Japanese market it’s a very important one for Sony, so it’s no wonder that the Xperia GX and SX will be promoted with an aggressive marketing campaign in the Land of the Rising Sun.

Sony posted three new commercials on its official YouTube account in the last few days, and these will surely raise some controversy. But as bizarre as they might seem at a first Western glance, the ads definitely have the potential to drive Sony’s sales forward in Japan.

Sony launches Music Unlimited streaming service in Japan, offers access to over 10 million songs

by: AdrianJuly 3, 2012

Japan is and has been one of the leading markets in technology for the past decade or so, but for some reason major music streaming services have avoided the “Land of the Rising Sun”. Spotify, Rdio, and Pandora are still not available to Japanese users, but fortunately for them Sony’s Music Unlimited is available starting today in the region.

Launched in December 2010 in UK and Ireland, Music Unlimited has enjoyed a pretty impressive spread in the last year or so and is now available in 17 countries around the globe, having well over one million active users.

In Japan, Sony’s on-demand streaming music service will come with initial access to 10 million tracks [...]

Samsung Galaxy S3 via NTT Docomo has amazing new specs

by: AdrianMay 16, 2012

Before we could even catch our breaths after the Galaxy S3’s pricing and availability announcement in Taiwan, Samsung has already announced the new flagship’s release on the most important mobile carrier in Japan, NTT Docomo. While it has failed to reveal the exact date when the S3 will hit NTT Docomo’s shelves and the device’s pricing in Japan, Samsung has mentioned a couple of very interesting technical details about the new phone.

First of all, the Japanese version of the S3, codenamed SC-06D, will be powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8960 S4 processor. The “Krait” chipset will replace  Samsung’s [...]
