Different Asian market, different focus

While I mostly look to China in trying to create a comparative analysis framework for the Canadian ICT industry, it’s hard to completely omit Japan due to their mobile sector.

I’ve tended to think of Japan in terms of handsets and end-user technologies, not necessarily in terms of infrastructure or policy. So coming across this article last month, “B.C. capitalizing on the new culture of openness in Japanese telecom market”, was interesting to give me some more context between the Japanese domestic mobile market and local BC tech companies.

WavefrontAC continues to interest me, ever since learning about them at a MobileCamp — or perhaps it was a DemoCamp? Regardless, I’m interested to see what the long term economic and policy impacts an organization like Wavefront will have on BC’s broader ICT development.
