Obviously "the mobile Internet has a role in this growing phenomenon in Japan" and if you are interested in more details, read the TechCrunch post.
Another interesting phenomenon in Japan is the trend to use cell phones to take University courses, writes Steven Bell from the Kept-Up Academic Librarian Blog.
Cyber University, Japan's only university "to offer all classes only on the Internet, began offering a class on mobile phones Wednesday on the mysteries of the pyramids. Unlike the other classes, the one on cell phones will be available to the public for free, although viewers must pay phone fees"
Cell phones are quickly becoming the new mobile computers on the go and everyone can easily browse the Internet, chat with friends, shop, read e-mail, and search for information and take video clips.
Maybe, here in the US taking online courses and reading books on mobile phones is just a matter of time?
