More about novels on cellphones

Eoin Purcell

Or as we call them Mobiles
The Wall Street Journal has an interesting piece on Cellphone novels in Japan in case you missed the recent NY Times piece:

According to industrywide data cited by Japan’s largest cellphone operator NTT DoCoMo Inc., sales from mobile-book and comic-book services are expected to more than double, to more than $200 million from about $90 million last year.

Prompted by this post by James Bridle, I downloaded A Tale of Two Cities to my mobile and frankly I’m in love with the idea. I’ve already read a few chapters while dallying around and suspect it will form the basis for my public transport/bored in company reading for days to come!

Read the articles then download a book!
