Last year, NTT DoCoMo exported the successful i-mode concept overseas. A crucial part of that concept is the much talked-about mobile content and service provider "ecosystem" and - sure enough - Japan's ecosystem players are following Big D's path. Today we focus on three smaller players that have found honest-to-goodness cash revenue in Europe due at least in part to their Japan antecedents. Ironically, none are working with any of the baby i-modes over there, showing you don't need DoCoMo to do what DoCoMo does - anywhere.
