Konnichiwa from Japan!
Flew in from Austin, Texas this morning. So glad Tokyo is a wi-fi wonderland.
[From 2012 -- 2017 Mobile data traffic will increase 14-fold to 1.8 exabytes per month]
There was no Wi-fi on my 14 hour flight! In the fog of smartphone-withdrawal, I video-conferenced with the passenger in front me for 5 minutes before I realized I was talking to the TV screen above my food tray! Not sure if you got my text, so I'm sending this postcard.

Salam. Rode a camel to the desert today. They all have cellphones out here! The people too! (laughter)
[Mobile devices will grow from 1.1B mobile devices to 1.6B mobile devices; or about 1.1 per person.]
So hot. Checking out the pyramids now. Did I mention that it is hot?
Bonjour! France is so romantic! The food, the fashion, and oh la la the mobile bandwidth!
[France: Mobile data connection speed will increase 5-fold from 1.3 Mbps to 6.0 Mbps]
There is even a building here that looksjust like the Tokyo tower!
If you got my e-mail, ignore this post card.
Au revoir, Emily
Olá from Brazil,
I got turned around on a boat trip through the rain forest. Rainier than I imagined. Luckily a friendly local pulled up a good map on his tablet for me. [the number of mobile users generating more than 2GBs per month will grow from 1.6M to more than 40M ]
Excellent coverage out here. Comforting, in case of a piranha event.
Good to be back home in the states. We had an unseasonal snowstorm while I was gone. Fortunately, my smartphone was monitoring the Austin forecast, emailed my thermostat, and they collaborated to save my pipes. So glad my devices get along with one another.
[mobile M2M traffic will grow 24-fold to 128 TBs per month]
See you soon, Emily
