TOKYO-KG Telecom, a leading mobile carrier in Taiwan, launched i-mode-like service on Thursday. Because it is the first i-mode-like service in Asia outside Japan, the new multimedia service is winning much attention.
Initially, 84 content offerings, including ring tone services, wall sheet services, games and information services, are being provided. For the time being, only one terminal, the N530i manufactured by NEC, is available for the service. More than 2,000 retail shops plan to sell i-mode-enabled terminals.
