Manga for Mobile: Video Preview
(From the WWJ Team, September 12, 2004)
(You can only see the preview on the GLOCOM Platform)
Japan's 3G networks enable new types of high-bandwidth mobile content that weren't viable under 2G for either economic or technical reasons. One of the coolest is mobile manga, delivering full-color comic book magazines to cell phones. There's a manga stuffed in every Japanese commuter's back pocket (together with a celly), so porting manga to keitai could make an awful lot of money for content producers. It'll also save a bunch of trees. Wireless Watch Japan was at Mobidec 2004 recently held in Tokyo and files this sneak preview from Digital Garage Mobile's booth.
