Zeebo China, a division of the global wireless platform that delivers digital content and services to consumers in emerging markets, will be bringing a 3G-connected education and entertainment platform to Chinese consumers.
The Zeebo platform will provide an affordable way for consumers to wirelessly access family-appropriate educational entertainment and China-specific web content. It will also introduce a new digital distribution mechanism for China’s content providers that leverages the country’s widespread 3G network. Zeebo China is working closely with Chinese partner companies to tailor Zeebo’s technology to the needs of consumers and to develop culturally-relevant content for Chinese families.
Zeebo China is also working closely with Chinese developers to spur the creation of content and applications designed specifically for the Chinese market and that are fully localized in Mandarin. Several educational applications for kids are being developed by Beijing-based Nebula Soft for the Zeebo system, including Blue Sea School and Fish vs. Pirates. Other planned titles include interactive learning books, English language learning and more.
A stand-lone version of the Zeebo system is also in the works that will allow users to plug the Zeebo into their television set, enabling consumers to download and access content.
