Disney opens first mobile phone store in Tokyo, Japan
Disney fans in Japan rejoice! The first Disney mobile phone store has opened in the heart of Tokyo – Shinjuku - and you can expect to find, not just phones but phone accessories and other products.
In 2006, Disney had launched Disney Mobile in the US, but unfortunately, it ceased operations at the end of 2007. Now Disney has chosen to bring the exclusive Disney Mobile phone store to Japan. The company will also run lottery draws for customers with a chance to win prizes including pens, notebooks, mugs and more.
Remember the Disney-themed Android smartphone news we covered in January? Yes, it will also be sold in the store. In case you missed the news, the Disney-theme smartphone runs Android 2.2 Froyo, has a 3.8-inch WVGA 3D glasses-free capacitive touchscreen display and 9.6-megapixel rear camera. It also features Disney-themed calendar, clock and messages. Customers who buy the phone will also own a personalized "disney.ne.jp" email address.
