Still more’. This is the most suitable phrase for this year’s Milia. There must be more. We must be able to expand the edges. Both companies provide infrastructure and companies/creators provide contents and platforms showed such feelings.
Interactive digital TV broadcasting, broadband Internet, contents for mobile phone like WAP and i-mode, and the new generation mobile phone. The latest technologies that have been regarded as something special are becoming very popular all over Europe, growing rapidly as a real service for the public. In such a situation, a feeling of ‘still more’ will continue until it’s finally realized. The feeling of ‘still more’ is reflected by the approach that keep their business and content development plans close to their chest as they try to find out each other’s real intentions.
Tera Group , based in Spain, provides Internet and mobile phone services for the vast Spanish and Portuguese-speaking world. In the thinktank summit that was held during Milia, Eliseo Sanchez, CEO of Tera Mobile (the mobile phone department of Tera Group in Spain), presented their idea for the next generation mobile phone service that corresponds to the amount of the data, and mentioned that they were looking for a partner to realize this idea. The service that corresponds to the amount of the data means a service that provides information based on text and can be connected from the mobile phones now in use. It would also be a service that enables banking, checking WWW and downloading games for the next generation mobile phone. They need a partner who provides that content.
They also aim to distribute moving images and to realize a complete-realtime videophone on the next generation mobile phone. The latter will be started next year (or they don’t have any other ideas but this).
