Mobikyo K.K. today announces the public launch of the Wireless-Watch Community (W-W.Com), a dynamically updated website aggregating high-caliber news and commentary from mobile experts, industry watchers and publishers worldwide. The W-W.Com platform enables established and respected thought leaders to contribute their analysis and insight to a multi-market channel that is on track to become the Web’s most comprehensive resource of independent wireless related information.
W-W.Com launches with more than twenty registered community publishers representing a deep cross section of the most credible and insightful reporting on day-to-day developments in mobile and wireless technology, business models, strategies, applications, terminals, convergence and Internet. “The concept is to gather talented regional mobile media publishers into a single portal to raise the online exposure for all, creating a custom, up-to-date news feed and offering dedicated content that will become a daily destination for the industry worldwide,” said Daniel Scuka, chief editor for Mobikyo’s Wireless Watch Japan media site.
All content coming into the system is retained with full click-through to the original source location and the process is entirely automated with no editorial filtering or control. “Following the famous i-mode model, we have built a critical-mass content platform with a generous revenue-share structure that provides a valuable opportunity for publishers and generates a unique offering for our site visitors,” said Lawrence Cosh-Ishii, representative director for Mobikyo.
The connection between the site and our contributors is more significant than a mere client/vendor relationship given the sharing of brand and trust between W-W.Com and community publishers. Therefore, Mobikyo has established a volunteer Advisory Board made up of experienced and respected peers who will provide robust and objective advice to the company on material matters of strategy and policy for Wireless-Watch Community.
We are pleased to announce that Mr. Walter Adamson, founder & principal at Digital Investor and vice-president of the i-mode Content Forum (i-CF), and best-selling author Mr. Tomi T Ahonen, principal behind the Next Generation Mobile Applications Forum (with Oxford University) and lecturer for Oxford’s 3G telecoms-related courses, have both agreed to join the board.
“I am proud to be involved with the launch of the Wireless-Watch Community, the real-time summary site for all of your favorite blogs about mobile telecoms and related topics. I congratulate Mobikyo for an excellent initiative in the digital community space. If you need to track the industry regularly, then you should put Wireless-Watch.com onto your reading list; you will catch everything that is happening in mobile,” said Tomi Ahonen.
“The Wireless-Watch Community is an excellent way to stay on top of a constantly evolving industry. This site is a necessary addition given how business models for mobile Internet are increasingly crossing borders and cultures,” added Walter Adamson.
