As many had predicted, the market for adult-themed content continues to grow as providers look to take advantage of advanced phone technologies and willing customers.
On the pornography side, U.K.-based wireless content provider Symbios Group announced it will launch several adult WAP sites with pictures of “page three” models taken exclusively for the effort.
“Symbios Group are becoming one of the leading providers of adult WAP content in the world; our technology, services and client list ensures we deliver the best product via WAP sites and the Web,” said Martin Montague, the company’s sales director.
Symbios said it will offer its WAP and billing solution to a range of U.K. customers, which will support a plug-in option for adult content. Symbios Group also offers ring tones and other wireless content.
On the gambling side, Casino Phone Technologies Ltd. announced the launch of its CasinoPhone application for mobile phone users in Europe and Asia. Based in Las Vegas, Casino Phone said its offering uses a prepaid card system that is bound by the same security and accounting practices of physical casinos.
“CasinoPhone is a fully functioning casino carrying your casino brand in your consumers’ pocket,” said William Donne, the company’s director of business development. “If you think your casino customers would like to continue to bet on the horses, play classic casino card games or just try their luck on slot machines once they leave your casino, now they can. All they now have to do is download the games from your Web site on to their mobiles, and once they purchase your prepaid gaming card, they are ready to play.”
