As part of the (digital) spring cleaning craze that’s sweeping the web these days (see WWJ), we finally managed to roll our new site design for Mobile Monday Tokyo. We are looking forward to providing a few extra offerings here for everyone in the near future as well, so stay tuned!
We’re pleased to announce the next MoMo event, on 23 April at KDDI’s Designing Studio, will feature a mobile mash-up of micro presentations in the super-cool “Demo Night” format — which has been popular in other chapter cities. For Demo Night, a line-up of interesting mobile companies will be allowed a 5- to 7-minute show & tell session for their mobile content or service offering — displayed on an actual handset and projected on the big screen for all to see.
Confirmed Presentations – now updated with event video below!
Tracey Northcott, VP at Enfour Group will demonstrate Camera Jiten [.PDF]. A native Brew dictionary application for use on KDDI handsets for instant scanning of English words giving their Japanese translations. This product is linked to their full dictionary service “Sougoeigojiten” for a drill down into the full definitions and pronunciation text to speech.
Mandali Khalesi, CEO of award-winning mobile marketing firm Naviblog, will present how to find Guinness with your mobile phone [.PDF]. The Guinness service is already available in selected Irish pubs and across the 23 wards of Tokyo, and is compatible with over 160 Japanese handsets from NTT Docomo, au by KDDI and Yahoo! Keitai.
David Collier, founder and CEO of Pikkle, will demonstrate technology which enables a new type of full-screen mobile flash service. Building on top of this core technology they provide a mobile flash social network engine (SNX) that allows the creation of niche social entertainment sites. Full flash gives impact, making this a demo you’ll want to take home.. and you can!
Nobuyoshi Noda, Mobile Division Deputy GM of Adways Co., Ltd, will present their Mobile Affiliate Advertisement Smart-C product. Capable of running mobile ad campaigns on all three carrier platforms, this opt-in management service – designed specifically for mobile content publishers – is based on a reward-per-transaction revenue model.
Tim Smith, Director of Freeverse Consulting, will “debut” Malibu IVP. A middleware approach to creating useful and viable 3G videocall applications it allows the developer and service provider to effectively approach this huge market opportunity. Malibu contains patented, exclusive technology directly associated with managing advertising on the 3G video network.
Special Guest Presentation
Hiroshi Oda — VP Corporate Communications — CIAJ
An Outline of the Digital Contents Pavilion @ CEATEC JAPAN 2007
In 2007, CEATEC JAPAN will launch a new special exhibit area under the theme of Digital Contents. This area is designed to support exhibitors’ efforts to win contents work, market contents and recruit high-quality contents personnel. As co-organizers of the annual CEATEC event, Oda-san’s presentation will center on an outline of the new Digital Contents exhibit area.
Our first Demo Night should be rather popular and will fill up fast! Online registration will remain open until Friday, 20 April — or until we hit maximum venue capacity. Finally, Welcome Aboard MoMo Taipei 😎
