Posted: 25-May-2000 [Source: BizTech]

[Japan's office equipment show became this week a venue for wireless as the main focus shifted to mobile tools and technologies.]

Tokyo -- "The Business Show 2000 Tokyo opened May 23 at the Tokyo International Exhibition Center (Tokyo Big Sight), and the big splash is the wireless universe.

"... Most popular among the exhibits are those showcasing mobile phones and handheld information devices. Also, presentations of enterprise systems based on wireless communications are popular. At previous shows, leading computer makers such as NEC Corp. and IBM Japan Ltd. had their own stands. This year, computer vendor stands are nowhere in evidence. The main focus on business equipment has apparently shifted to mobile tools and wireless technology.

"A total of 628 exhibitors are at the Business Show 2000, far exceeding the 456 companies that participated last year. The show runs for four days through May 26, with a total of around 400,000 visitors expected.

"... The most popular stand is that of NTT DoCoMo, which has a wide array of wireless phones on display. One of the models can receive moving pictures, so the user can view video content on a handheld device. Also on show are color displays for external connection to a PHS handset (photo on the right), and prototype terminals equipped with a browser that complies with the W-CDMA standard, with demonstrations of color video streaming using MPEG-4.

"Among the external displays for PHS handsets is one featuring a tiny camera, so users can take a picture to accompany an e-mail message. The display has a slot for a compact flash card, enabling the received data to be stored. As for future plans, NTT DoCoMo is considering producing PHS handsets with a built-in color display, according to a company official.
