Day 536 { More And More Stares / Docomo To Enter US Market}

Today I made the blunder and went to the supermarket on a Sunday... And ooh boy, everybody and their grand parents and children were there...
I had a couple a things to buy which meant that I was going to be there for a while.... At least I knew a couple of the persons there today, but 95% of them I did not know..... And you don't have to ask if they were staring....Especially the kids...
I even saw this kind of handicapped kid staring at me and making up his face....
It is absolutely uncomfortable sometimes, I just cannot get used to this at all...



Japan's number 1 mobile phone service provider is planning to enter the US market in 2010.

NTT DoCoMo Inc. is planning to make a foray into the U.S. mobile phone market next year, offering smart phones and other high-performance handsets featuring its i-mode Internet service, sources said Friday.

The move would be DoCoMo's first attempt to launch its brand in an overseas market.

Initially, the nation's top mobile phone company may start out as a mobile virtual network operator, leasing capacity from a major cell phone service provider in the United States, the sources said.

If DoCoMo opts to start this way, it would likely lease infrastructure from AT&T Inc. or T-Mobile USA Inc.
