@CaveDweller: Haha - compared to what? Softbanks service? You get what you pay for..a network that is reliable and fast.

The LG is a monster specs-wise, but their history with past models (in Japan and elsewhere) makes me skeptical that it'll be any good.

I want a Keitai mostly for making calls and taking messages, the rest are extras many of which been available for years.

A smart-phone, pad still can't replace a real PC, etc unless you like typing on a small keyboard and got limited access to stuff like cd's, dvd's, etc.

Of course you can buy the same stuff/online but why have multiple devices that can do most of the same functions.

I am faster using my PC(Mac) to find a location on google maps, etc than my friends using their smart-phones. Ditto for many other applications/uses.

Every seaskn they are introducing 5 to 20 android devices. But their software upgradation is very very slow when compare to rest of the world. Still they upgrade only one device(sc-02d) to android 4.0. Other devices are waittttinnnggggg. So sad...

I agree.. I have a Optimus LTE and read that Docomo was going to upgrade my phone to 4.0 Well where is the update? Do I need to go in a Docomo shop to get this thing updated?

The 4.0 upgrades for last year's summer/fall models are slowly starting to trickle out. SC-02C got a (finally working) one last month (too late for me, I already switched to CM10 Jelly Bean preview version on that phone) and the SC-01D just a couple days ago.
