PlayPhone En Espanol
PlayPhone, Inc., which operates the largest network of mobile content destinations in North America, announced today that it has launched its own market-leading destination at www.playphone.com in Spanish. From this point forward, the Latino community has access to top-branded mobile entertainment through a medium specifically tailored to their needs at www.playphone.com/espanol.
"PlayPhone understands the importance of the Hispanic community within the mobile entertainment ecosphere," said Ron Czerny, founder and chief executive officer at PlayPhone. "With our content destination now available in Spanish, we can better provide our compelling content such as ringtones, wallpapers, games and more to a segment of the market that is key for delivering continued success."
Hispanics are the fastest-growing population segment in the United States, according to figures provided from the Selig Center for Economic Growth, and are among the most avid consumers of mobile content and services. Additionally, they are the fastest-growing and youngest US mobile segment, with the highest average revenue per user of any demographic group, according to Telephia's "Q2 2007 Mobile Hispanic Report."
Consumers can access the Spanish site by going directly to www.playphone.com/espanol or selecting the Language menu at the top of the usual PlayPhone destination at www.playphone.com. Not only does the site feature navigation and valuable information in Spanish, but also promotes top mobile entertainment of interest to the Latino community alongside its usual compelling content from partners such as SONY BMG, EMI Group, Cartoon Network, SEGA, Bandai, Disney, Glu Mobile, Konami, Vivendi Universal, Sony Pictures Entertainment, ABC Television, Platinum Studios and many more.
