However, that is already known and if they don't care, how is there pressure? From where? Are there reports saying that more are leaving in even higher numbers? Really, 4 years and nothing changed, I see little pressure.
What market forces? If they are going in another direction, how is the market forcing them to do otherwise?
This reminds me of when people say Apple has to do this, or do that, or offer this feature, or that feature as the market demands, and Apple does not, but goes in their own direction. How is this different from this telco?
The carrier is focused on developing a "lifestyle system," which requires certain software to come preinstalled on phones, NTT DoCoMo CEO Kaoru Kato said
It seems to me that DoCoMo has a different strategy that what fits the Apple model. If so, they must be content in this strategy, or there is something that forces them to change. I was simply asking, aside from the hype of the lead, what has taken place that is forcing their hand?
I am not suggesting their strategy is good or bad, but only asked what is this mounting pressure? I just think the title is misleading when the only new news is that DoCoMo is developing a 'lifestyle system'. Perhaps a better, less dramatic title, would have been, "DoCoMo Develops a Lifestyle System While Continually Not Offering the iPhone".
