I really cannot understand what the ultimate aim of mobile phone makers is and whether there is any limitation of tasks these smartphones cannot perform. After snatching the world of multimedia from the big screen domain, they have brought our superhero comics on their small display screen with the people of Japan leading the mobile comics craze.
The penchant for superhero comics as well as for the smartphones has made Japanese publishers digitalize their comics for the mobile-savvy Japanese. The size of the mobile comics market is first expanding, even overtaking the e-publication market for PCs. According to the Internet and media research firm, Impress R&D, the size of the mobile publication market had doubled in the last fiscal year to 22 billion yen. The people of Japan are seemed to have hooked themselves to games and comics on their mobile phone. However, to avoid straining the eyes while reading the superhero comics on the touchscreen display of the mobile phone, manufacturers cannot go on shrinking the size of their devices. A 3.3-inch display might be a better option. The mobile comics’ mania is now raising the revenues of sites like GoComics.
