Type a novel on your mobile
4 December 2007
I am intrigued to discover the phenomenon of mobile novels or keitai shousetsu in their native Japan where they have become a new publishing media. These novels are not only downloaded at a cost of about $15 to a mobile phone for reading, the authors also use their SMS keyboarding skills to write the novels on their mobiles! Popular mobile novels average 400,000 paid downloads each, often in instalments.
