New Hopes for Japanese Handset Manufacturers

David McNeill has written a very interesting story in The Independent today on Japanese handset manufacturers and their efforts to grow internationally once again. A number of people have been very interested Google Android and its influence on Japanese handset manufacturers. I've also argued in this recent Forbes article that while Apple and iPhone are making an enormous impact globally, for all other players outside of the Apple's value system, that Google Android offers something not yet seen before.

I'd love your comments and opinions on what I've been saying so far, and look forward to watching how the industry develops over the next 6-12 months.
