Japan’s largest mobile operator NTT DoCoMo is to open a wholly owned subsidiary called DoCoMo i-mode Europe in the Netherlands. The subsidiary is to promote i-mode services in Europe.
The European office will provide consultation on the technology and marketing. It will also support the setup and operation of i-mode services to the European operators that have acquired an i-mode technology license.
DoCoMo i-mode Europe is to be established in the Netherlands at the end of July. It will employ around 10 people, with capital of $2.4 million.
