Mickey packs up his cell phone, and heads to Japan

Do you remember Disney Mobile? No? Well, It didn't work so well here in the states, but Mickey's looking to find His niche in Japan.

In early 2008 Disney will start releasing Mouse branded cell phones through Japanese provider Softbank. Sounds good in theory, but analysts are already killing their buzz by predicting low consumer interest.

Maybe they are years ahead of their time? Or maybe Disney should just rethink their whole cell phone scheme. Take a step back, and settle for providing content for the major companies.
