The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Adult content provider MobVision is fully launching its content delivery and billing system for mobile phones.

Mobile porn has long been predicted as the saviour of next generation phones and researchers at Visiongain estimate that profits from adult content could be $4b a year by 2006.

MobVision offers a simple way to send content and receive payment. It also has a library of a million still images and twenty thousand videos – all legal and licensed.

It offers content and billing services or can convert existing material so it can be distributed and paid for on mobile phones.

The service has already gone live in Australia and will launch soon in Europe, South Africa and the US.

Sadly a call from El Reg to the mobile pornster's HQ in Covent Garden was met with voicemail – they must be away from their desks checking the screen quality on their mobiles.

In other news, Dixons has bought a stake in MonsterMob which provides ringtones, games and porn to mobile phone subscribers. MonsterMob claims to have 140,000 subscribers to its various services. Subscriptions were previously sold in Link stores and are to be extended to PC World and Dixons shops. Dixons spent £500,000 on the 1.28 per cent stake. ®
