Meaning "everywhere" in Japanese, DoCoMo (or NTT DoCoMo) is Japan's leading wireless communications operator (1) and arguably the world's most successful mobile Internet provider.

Handsets are manufactured by name-brand consumer-electronics outfits like Sony and Panasonic, but DoCoMo subsidizes the phones heavily to keep the price low: A model that might ordinarily cost $600 retails for less than $350.
Because DoCoMo's wireless network is packet-switched, users are charged only for the number of data packets they send back and forth, not for the amount of time they're connected, as on most networks outside Japan.
