Naviblog Corp., which showcased their local search and location-based information sharing technology at Mobile Monday Tokyo in May, gave a very entertaining presentation at the Mobile Entertainment Forum, part of the recent Wireless Japan 2006 trade show. In the presentation, Naviblog CEO & President Mandali Khalesi explained their browser-based approach to mobile products in more detail.
As Philip Sugai, Assistant Professor at the International University of Japan, Niigata, and founding member of the newly established u-Lab mobile think tank, said afterwards: “What an eye-opener! Not only is the stuff those guys are doing unbelievably cool, but after seeing their presentation, I think I will completely have to revise my lecture style.” u-Lab sponsored the Mobile Entertainment Forum event.
