Ride with the Internet as Tokyo taxis get Wi-Fi
Some 820 Tokyo taxis have been installed with the technology on a trial basis until the end of March 2011 and 100 of the taxis also have PSP Go devices on board so that users can play games while going for a ride.
The trial aims to find out what the demand is for Wi-Fi while on the go, and could see the service expand after March.

Docomo, which employs Darth Vader and Maki Horikita (who recently spoke to CNNGo) as the faces of their advertisements, has also recently lanuched an early earthquake warning system for their mobile phones.
This Christmas it is also set to deliver the world's fastest cellphone network.
