 Why are Japanese still using flip phones?

Historically speaking, flip flops appeared very early in Japan. As early as 1991, NTT DoCoMo, a Japanese telecom company, launched the first series of ultra-small portable phones, which could be turned up and down.

But at this time, mobile phones, like our cell phones in those days, were the toys of local tyrants and simple communication tools.

With the development of the times and the reduction of cost, mobile phones have gradually entered the publics vision, and the price has begun to be accepted and popularized among consumers.

And the mobile phone that just launched is a straight cell phone. Later, flip mobile phones have become the most popular mobile phones in the world. As soon as they are launched, they occupy half of the mobile phone market. What is the reason for this?

Some people like the opening and closing sound of pa. Others say they like the privacy protection of flip phones. The internal and external screen design of the flip phone is designed to meet the high demand of Japanese for privacy, so that they can quickly browse the information summary such as SMS and phone calls without being paid attention to the details without opening the screen.

There is also a larger screen than the straight button press.

Around 2000, Japan began to formally commercial 3G network. As Japans oldest telecom operator, NTTDoCoMo also chose to put news browsing, e-mail receiving and sending, ticket booking and other common services into the function machine at that time.

In this way, the mobile phone has changed into a multi-functional device.

Users can check the weather in the menu, check the subway commuting time, read e-books and so on, and even directly use the services of various Japanese websites.

I remember that at that time, Japans flip flop was introduced to China, and it was also popular for a period of time. On the one hand, the screen was large enough and the selfie was good-looking. On the other hand, it was suitable for DIY. At that time, it was very common to stick flash drills on the flip flop and attach a rope.

Later, it was a pity that NTTDoCoMo failed to copy its advanced mobile Internet model to overseas regions. Instead, it was a closed ecological environment, which indirectly restricted the innovation ability of Japanese local mobile phone manufacturers. In recent years, nttcocomo has been partitioned into the market by imported products such as iPhone and Android.

On the websites of Japans mobile phone online stores, it can be found that Japanese people are used to calling smart phones and traditional mobile phones separately. Touch screen machines like iPhone are called u30b9u30deu30db, that is, smart phones.

The traditional Flap machine and function machine are called u30acu30e9u30b1u30fc.

Perhaps, tradition is not necessarily backward.

People say that fashion is a circle, and popular elements rotate in turn. Maybe the same is true of the young mobile phone circle. We are waiting for innovation and reincarnation.
