Market Research Report
The low-cost personal handyphone system (PHS) service has been in decline in Japan in the face of the sophisticated products offered by the major operators, and currently has about three million subscribers. Designed to fill the gap between wireline and full mobility services, PHS has enormous potential in developing countries. The technology also has potential for data services, and Microsoft's Japanese subsidiary plans trials of a new data push system, which will use PHS technology to communicate with personal digital assistants. It will use technology that will enable the PHS server to remotely wake the PDA when information is available.
