Yes, I noticed the Kanji. Even more importantly, I noticed the DVD logo on it. Oh well. Kind of makes me wonder why they would not have that for the rest of the world.Part number A 203 827 23 42 is a Japanese market unit built by Matsushida (Panasonic). Note the Kanji characters on some of the buttons, and that the phone and function buttons are reversed. I doubt there is US mapping software for it.
