KEITAIALL: Specs on all Japanese Mobiles

Posted by Paul McMahon on 2009-12-04

matsui-san has written a new blog post on ke-tai.org, describing KEITAIALL, a service for viewing technical specs for Japanese mobile phones.  I'm a fan of the site's simple and clean design, that allows you to view information about handsets at a glance, or search for a specific model.

The information provided includes:

  • Carrier
  • Model Name
  • Manufacturer
  • Sale Name
  • Series
  • First Day of Sale
  • Browser Version
  • Generation (2G/3G)
  • Cache
  • Screen Width
  • Flash Version
  • Ranking According to Share

matsui-san ponders about the licensing of this data, and points out that you can view all the data in xml by visiting http://keitaiall.jp/inc/choice.xml.  If developers are free to use and adapt this data as they choose, it could be a great boon to developers.
