Japan has a huge mobile network that for many users, predicates the PC’s role as superfluous. Â However, that mobile network makes use of what Apple might call the ‘non-real internet’. Â If your needs turn you to that ‘non-real internetÂ your user experience is at best turbulent and sometimes laughable. Â It just won’t do mobile internet with any semblance of reliability. Â Even some ‘real’ internet pages don’t display correctly, becoming a choppy and unusable mess.
The age old question still remains: Â what does one do when they must reserve shinkansen tickets from sites like express yoyaku? Â Answer, hop on a computer or use a phone that can only access the ‘non-real internet’.
