2000 to 2020: Era of Smartphone with multimedia, gaming and mobile broadband connectivity
Sharp created the first camera phone J-SH04 (J phone), which was the first cell phone that included a camera feature. Users can use this cell phone to take photos and send them by email with the 3G system. Japan was a leader for the cell phone with a camera. That made mobile culture more popular in Japan.
Passengers were not allowed to make phone calls on the train, so passengers used text messages and emails as alternatives during this time. I could see many young people texting using text messages and cute emojis. It is still popular right now, so Japan is at least ahead of the communication behavior revolution in 10 years.
The development of the smartphone and 4G (fourth-generation cellular system) after 2009-10 allowed us to have very clear face-to-face video calls, specifically with the iPhone. The interaction became easier, which we can simply say “Hi Siri, call my mom.” The voice assistant automatically dials the call for you.
