Question from Nikkei Newspaper:
I felt the intention of having users in a wider group use it, but what kind of users are assumed?
People who want to use a lot of telephone and communication, we assume 20 to 30 generations. I think that there are many men in their 30s.
Last year I mentioned 5 million subscribers at the time of service launch and 250-3 million joining of break-even points, but what about the response?
We are assuming 2 million subscribers in 2012.
What is your view on communication speed competition with next generation PHS and so on?
Although I have not done experiments yet, I heard that HSDPA can increase to 40 to 80 Mbps at present. Speed is being impossible unless it receives new frequency band from the Ministry of Internal Affairs and is talking. And we want to counter existing operators with fee and running cost. Although we are discussing WiMAX, HSDPA, LTE etc, obviously the mainstream movement in the world is HSDPA. We are considering updating existing ones (HSDPA in case of e-mobile).
Questions from Nikkei Communication:
Does this model support roaming?
It does not correspond. Because the population coverage rate reaches 84%. DoCoMo's data roaming does not have much speed, so I'd like to maintain the base station on my own. I would like to aim for a population coverage rate of 90% within the year.

What are your plans for making international roaming available for mobile devices?
Because it is compatible with GSM, it is studying about setting international roaming fee.
Is there a possibility that an iPhone comes out?
Q & A session is over, I will enter the photo session now.
Because the mock was exhibited, during the shooting it, the live broadcast is over for the time being. Congratulations!
