Japan to finally get number portability

Chris Ziegler

All of us at Engadget HQ are sticking out our collective tongues in the general direction of the Pacific Ocean today upon hearing that Japan, purveyor of all things higher-tech than our own, is just now getting number portability come October of this year. For anyone looking to keep count, we've had WNP here in the states for some two-odd years now -- even longer in major metro areas -- giving American mobile customers one small victory against their Japanese counterparts. Not to suggest we aren't still being embarrassed by things like carriers releasing twelve phones in a single day or 2.5Gbps 4G data tests, but hey -- baby steps, right?
