“According to a report in the Japanese Daily Mainichi, Japan’s Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications has slammed Jobs’ Mob and SoftBank Mobile, for offering “insufficient” content control for minors.

Apparently, the Land of the Rising Sun has strict legal rules for mobile Internet usage by minors and even Apple sails close to the wind over what a kiddie is allowed to see.

Japan’s Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications is writing a stiff letter to Apple to devise and install content filtering software on the iPhone as soon as possible.

Mainichi said that this content filtering software will restrict the minors from accessing any ‘harmful’ content on the mobile web, not even accidentally.”
