“Next generation mobile phones that enable users to connect to the Internet at any time are becoming increasingly popular”, says Xtown Mobile Ltd's Chairman, Mr. Erwin HUANG. “Our publishing mode is radically different from more traditional methods and it is a product to meet the increasing demand for new generation phones and their relevant software. By simply downloading our mobile publishing platform to their new generation phone, users can easily see news on their display screens”, he added.
A mobile platform whose pictures are worth 1,000 words
Xtown has rapidly grasped the enormous potential offered by internet-capable mobile phones. In enabling both content providers and mobile operators to deliver a variety of multi-media content on such phones, the company has increased both its clients' customer bases and data utility rates. Currently, an Xtown system offering users detailed news updates has been successfully launched both here in Hong Kong and overseas. HUANG described the system as being: “Very user-friendly and offering users smoother and more fun and engaging interactive news and information. As we believe that pictures are worth 1,000 words, our platform uses photos to replace text. By viewing the photos and their captions, users can see all the latest news in the shortest time and fastest way possible”, he added.
Xtown's system incorporates an innovative user-interface and operation mode which can support most common next generation mobile phone operation platforms. “Our OEM-type technologies are primarily targeted at mobile operators and content providers or publishers”, said HUANG. He went on to add that he and his team are confident that their system will continue to create still more exciting user experiences on the new mobile media platform. “We ultimately hope to become an industry-recognized mobile publishing system which will enable users to access multi-media information anytime anywhere”, he concluded.
