Wii Like Cell Phones?

by Bradley DeLorenzoJuly 4, 2007

Yes, from the sounds of it we will soon have motion sensitive cell phones.

Silly as it maybe two company’s have come together and started working on it for release in Japan for this coming May.

Here’s the Article

“Love your Nintendo Wii but lament you can’t have it everywhere you go? NTT DoCoMo, a Japanese cell phone maker, has made a cell phone with Wii Like gameplay. The new product will hit Japan in May but the company has not announced any plans to bring the product here. If it proves to be a hit, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the company roll them out for the Holiday rush.

“Traditionally in trains youngsters would be staring down at their phones playing games but that is going to change dramatically,� said Takeshi Natsuno, senior vice president of NTT DoCoMo.

The new product is a collaboration between tech heavyweights Mitsubishi Electric Co. Ltd., Matsushita Electric Industrial Co. Ltd. (Panasonic) and Sharp Corp. The device runs on 3G so not only will the phone have gaming, it will run on high speed internet.

For the equivalent of $8 a month users can purchase a Napster subscription that will allow them to store songs on the new device. NTT DoCoMo says its “new product going to take the offensiveâ€? among challengers in the cell phone market which is growing competitive in the last few years.”

    How would it even work??? To play games on your cell phone you need to see the screen…. That’ll be kinda hard while moving it around….

    Yeah, I agree Major, I don’t understand it.

    And, also.

    It’s a CELL PHONE.

    Why wouldn’t they just try for a handheld if they thought they really wanted to try it.

    The highspeed internet on the go is kind of cool though, I must admit.

    This may be an opportunity for me to grab myself a game-related cell phone. Everyone of my friends and family all have one except me.
    With 3G, I’d love to be surfing the web on the go. Just worried about the monthly rate. We’ll see..
