Video: Marketing in Japan? Think Mobile (4 minutes with Gen Kanai)

Gen Kanai, Mozilla’s (makers of the Firefox Browser) marketing manager in Japan shares with me how mobile has impacted the culture of Japanese. From communications, payment, media consumption, and internet usage, Japan’s mobile culture is unique. Gen also blogs at the Mozilla Asia blog, where you can see how they specifically serve their Asian market.

Recently, I was checking out Forrester’s Jonathan Brown’s blog he focuses on the web and user experience in Japan, a related read. The sound on the video wasn’t that great, just to let you know in advance. Ironically, during this conversation on mobile marketing my cell phone starts to ring.
