Now, there is another country that I'm dying to see a service like this to be rolled out - Japan. One of the biggest inconveniences I experience when I travel to Japan is no free Wifi in coffeeshops. Probably due to such a prevelant use of 3G Keitais, not many of the local Japanase folks seem to be so much bothered by the lack of Wifi in coffeeshops - but I assume many foreigners, espeically business travelers, would appreciate it if they can drop by a Starbucks in Shibuya and check some emails while sipping on a latte.
