– Product Portfolio: Handsets, VAS, Bundling? The TTL spokesperson declined to comment on specifics, saying that “a fair amount of agreements have already been inked in the market. We’re talking to handset providers, our partners Docomo, VAS providers for rolling out services together.” But will the focus be on USB data card services, or mobile VAS? The spokesperson said that the product portfolio will evolve, but it’s not going to be a question of data, voice OR VAS, but all of them.
