“Japan’s electronics industries: mono zukuri”

  1. Why Apple Pay isn’t as revolutionary as it seems (Airtime: Wednesday, 17 September 2014, 7:34 JST, 03:42 mins)

    Japan’s NTT-Docomo tested two types of wallet phones, manufactured by Panasonic and SONY with 5000 customers between December 2003 and June 2004, and introduced mobile payments and wallet phones on July 10, 2004 – over 10 years ago.

    ApplePay therefore could be developed based on over 10 years of experience with mobile payments in Japan. ApplePay is expected to be introduced for the USA market in October 2014, and we can expect Apple to introduce ApplePay to other markets including Japan in due course.
