Apr 02, 2004

NTT DoCoMo has announced the establishment of the "Mobile Society Research Institute" to study the social impact of mobile phone use. The research institute, which will remain independent from DoCoMo's business, will aim to clarify both the positive and negative aspect of mobile phones. DoCoMo's aim is to focus on enhancing the upside, while minimizing the downside by taking necessary countermeasures. Findings will be disclosed to the public through reports, publications, or symposiums.
