NTT DoCoMo to stop "Push To Talk" Services

docomo_logoJapanese Mobile operator NTT DoCoMo announced that “Push to Talk” services will stopped next year.

“Push Talk” services will not accept new application from end of September 2009, while the services will be halted completely end of September 2010.
As cell phone usage in Japan is mostly about data (emailing, browsing), “Push Talk” seems like a service that is unlikely to be popular. While I don’t have exact figures, I can’t imagine people standing in the street receiving a “Push Talk” message.
