April MoMo Rocked!

MoMo event at Ebisu Zest with ColorZip and Mobaho!

It was another fantastic evening of networking, mingling and cool mobile tech talk, we ‘kinda’ lost track on head count thru the door, easily +200 in the house! Here’s a quick video clip from that event. We’ll post a follow-up report shortly, with links to the past MoMo Tokyo presentation files, right here on the brand spanking new mobilemonday.jp website design.. a work in progress.. =@_@=

Many thanks again to Super Sponsors, Morgan Lewis and SARJAM, and to our presenters, Yamaguchi-san from MCBO and Evan Owens from ColorZip. Note there was news from Korea yesterday on the launch of a satellite-to-mobile phone broadcast service similar to the one that Mobile Broadcast Inc. (Mobaho!) is considering.

Once we get a little more comfortable using Word Press and finally have everything in place, anyone who has registered and/or attended a past MobileMonday Tokyo event will receive an email invitation to log in and set up their profile. We are pretty darn excited about building the site into a fantastic community networking platform for MoMo members with the aim of enabling online contact, networking and staying in touch between events.

Mobaho! MoMo at Ebisu Zest

We’re thrilled to announce another exciting Mobile Monday evening with professional networking and live presentations from two of the most interesting companies shaping the future of Japan’s mobinet.

Huge New Venue – with a Massive Screen – Ebisu Zest Cantina

Featuring Special Guests:

Mobile Broadcasting Corp. [.pdf]
Dr. Yoshitake Yamaguchi, the General Manager from Mobile Broadcasting Corp., will describe his company’s first-ever provision of direct satellite-to-mobile data services spanning two major Asian markets as Mobaho! goes nose-to-nose with 3G cellular operators for a slice of mobile consumers’ wallets. Mobile Broadcast is a JV led by Toshiba, SK Telecom and a grouping of technology companies, broadcasters, media players and content vendors and is helping set the standard for flat-rate data services that traditional ground-based providers will find tough to beat.

ColorZip Japan Inc. [.ppt]
Evan Owens, senior manager at ColorZip Japan and a long-time Japan market development pro, will present ColorCode, an innovative new way to use barcodes as more than just black-and-white data blobs. ColorCode technology will significantly boost options for mobile phones in advertising, marketing and public communication applications. ColorZip Japan is targeting a launch of its technology on Japanese television later this year. ColorZip will also be featured in an upcoming Wireless Watch Japan programme.

Admission is FREE with Food & Drink ticket for the first 100 arrivals!
