NYT discovers Japanese cell phones

A recent NYT article about Japanese cell phones pretty much rehashes what I wrote about Japanese cell phones on Wired.com and Gizmodo a year ago. Interesting trend, where big media comes out with stories about topics that bloggers have written about a while back, except they add analyst quotes, industry data, and flashy headlines to make it into a "serious news article." Sometimes it even happens at the same publication.
