or may be it is just another distribution of roles: Fujitsu to replace Renesas as Docomo's preferred partner in the Japanese market, while Renesas goes global.

They could be successful in developing nations like India and of course Africa. They must develop their own business model and do not try to catch up. The Chinese do not allow Apple to lead them, they never try to compete with Apple. They created their own model and today they have founded success in ultra-cheap product lines. Docomo needs a Docomo model and if they do it, they can lead because this sector is still early in the morning. No winners YET, just temporary ones.

I've seen too many companies put too much of their resources to develop products for one big customer. This can be good business, at least for a while. At some point, they get kicked out as the sole supplier and they don't have another large customer to fall back on. It is better to market to the industry and try to have several medium size customers or many small customers.

I wonder what the response from Qualcomm will/would be to this? The mobile market is clearly not going away and will only grow. The question in my mind: what direction will the various players try to take?

The emergence of smartphones and Android has really changed the mobile landscape in Japan, I think. Now, everyone in Japan is playing a catch up. How successful Docomo is going to be in the market outside Japan still remains to be seen. (Docomo has invested in India's Tata Teleservices.)

Docomo once led the way in cellular concepts, now not so much. Good on Renesas for having broader ambitions.
