PRLog - April 13, 2012 - LOS ANGELES -- In the West, most digital music sales are downloads from the internet, but in Japan almost 90% of all digital music sales (over $1 billion worth) are Chaku-Uta formats for traditional mobile phones, while only about 10% are downloads via internet to computers and other devices. This is due to the advanced mobile phone culture in Japan and the fact that people still use the traditional keitai mobile phone as their primary music device. More people own a mobile phone instead of a computer. However, due to the growing popularity and sales of smart phones in Japan, downloads via the internet are expected to rise significantly.
