KDDI'S Au phones to accept english disaster-time messages
Japanese company KDDI Corp has announced yesterday that its disaster-time message transmission services via the au cell phone EZweb email function will also have English messages from July 14. So, I guess this could help all the ‘lost in translation’ foreigners from the Nippon Island. The services, available from Jan 31 for Japanese messages, will allow au-brand cell phone users to leave messages such as "safe," "sustained damage," and "staying at home" or "staying at a shelter" as well as a short comment on the message board of the EZweb email services.
