July-August 2006 Ztrack (The Japan issue)
- Hi Gang,
This month's Ztrack is landing in mailboxes across the world and
readers will enjoy another informative and entertaining issue. In
addition to the usual new product announcements there is one article
that I believe "Haralds" an emerging marketplace for Z and one in
which I have a personal interest, Japanese Z. It may take 3 or 4
years, but mark my words, Z will see important growth in Japan.
Here is a peek at what else is in store for subscribers:
