Google’s senior v.p. of global sales, Omid Kordestani spoke at the conference in Tokyo last week that they will add engineers in Japan to develop new technologies in one of the most advanced markets for mobile technologies.
They understand the importance of offering more mobile services in Japan where more people access web via mobile phones than via PCs. Google’s tie-up with KDDI to provide its first search engine and the advertising services for mobile phone are some of the first steps to strengthen their presence in the market.
