Softbank Summer 2010 Collection… It’s Twitter Time Baby !
This morning Softbank announced none the less than 12 new mobile phones in Japan with one common feature… Twitter! Yes Apparently Twitter is starting to be a HUGE thing in Japan and goes far beyond already that MySpace and FaceBook, but since now SoftBank is now heavly backing up Twitter in Japan and incorporate it in all its Summer handset, we can bet that Twitter will soon kick ass to some major player here like Mixi for example.
Softbank worked closely with Twitter in Japan and did not only implement a dedicated Java Twitter App, but also a set of App for people who does not desire to create a Twitter account immediately. Basically from your mobile phone you will either be capable to create your own tweets and and follows other people tweets, or just follow a selection of preprogrammed twitter channel (sports, Fashion, News) created by Softbank in order to get all the latest news without the needs for your to create an account.
