  • Very interesting movement! In January, I switched to a Windows smart phone from Japanese traditional phone. The most annoying thing is that you can’t use contactless payment functions such as Suica, Pasmo, Edy, etc by smart phones. You can’t endure fumbling several cards every time you get on a train or buy a candy in a convenience store once you get accustomed with doing everything by a mobile phone. I’m seriously thinking about transferring SIM card from my smartphone to my old phone to bring it back to work again.
    Smart phones are not smart enough until they are equipped with contactless payment capabilities.
