Mobile Content Cards
6:00 PM -- I have seen a couple of startups now that are trying to get mobile content and video players into users' handsets by selling memory cards loaded with films and TV programs.
For instance, ROK Corp. Ltd. sells SD cards in the U.K. loaded with BBC TV programs. They cost around $30 a shot at the moment, although they would be slightly less if the dollar weren't so weak against the pound.
I personally wouldn't buy these cards even if I liked the content. The phone screen is still too small for me to handle watching full-length programs, and I'd worry about losing the SD cards.
So, I'm wondering if readers think this is a good delivery mechanism for mobile content. I'd love to know your opinion.
