Asahi Breweries has teamed up with Willcom to give away 5,000 1-Seg digital TV watches. According to the Willcom contest info page: “By inserting W-SIM in a slot, you can make a telephone call and use mail over the microcell network of Willcom.” No info on the hardware specifications, such as battery run time, etc., that we could find in a hurry; however, we’re looking forward to seeing these units popping up around town and are actually just rushing out the door now to buy a flat of brews so we hopefully get one of our own!
Smooth move for both Asahi and Willcom to co-operate on this. It would be great to get some details after the campaign ends. At the very least it raises both profiles and will get a few more people interested in digital TV and in taking a test drive on Willcom’s PHS network! Via: DWT
