You got a mail…

Japanese iPhones are a bit different from other iPhones in the world.

In many ways, they’re worse…like no tethering.

In other ways, they’re cool…like push notification emails when using the XXXXXX@i.softbank.jp email addresses.

But there’s always been one “function” that makes me scratch my head…

It’s the push notifications for the email.

“You got a mail”…

what?

from who?

You mean,

“You’ve got mail”

or

“You got mail”

not

“You got A mail…”

Who wrote that anyways??

I don’t think it’s grammatically correct but even if it is,…it sounds awkward and …well,…incorrect.

It had to be some translating lady working at a company subcontracted by Softbank to “localize” the iPhone for Japanese market use…

I’ve done work like that and I can totally imagine this kind of thing happening…

Why do they let this go on?

and “Dismiss”??

dismiss what?

not Close? or Exit? or Quit?

My iPhone can’t speak Engrish. ; )
