Compared to the latest Asian cell phone technology, the US cellular products look antiquated. Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo's new 901i series phones are capable of four-way videoconferencing and high-speed mobile Internet surfing.

They can operate as TV remote controls,
at least two-megapixel cameras, have miniature "3-D sound" speakers, act as a fingerprint sensor, or a digital wallet.

There are several reasons why the US doesn't have these phones, yet, but the main reason is that the cellular network is a mess and can't provide 3Gig or 4Gig networks that are required at this time.

Now everyone say "Thankyou FCC for breaking up the phone company Ma Bell and getting rid of industry standards"

Now with the deregulation of the power industry lets see how much competition saves us. Oh wait, My electric bill went up 20% this month... But Wal-Mart who can now buy in bulk went down. Wait, I thought this would save me money. That is what the TV ads said.
