Their Android catalog in Japan is huge. Shortly after people here wanted a "retinal" display, Sharp had one there already. Exact same screen size and resolution. I was told that it was top quality to boot.
They keep telling us we want thin. According to those impressed by the almost one millimeter thickness reduction in one of the new models coming, that's evidently true. In Japan, they get waterproof instead.
I was in the rain when my phone rang, of course, I didn't answer it. The Japanese standing near me looked around to see who wasn't answering. When they saw me, their faces changed to one of polite understanding and they nodded. And went back to texting and talking.
It was at that moment that I knew that we were doing it wrong.
