Mobile social community mig33, which is usually used in emerging markets, is expanding with the introduction of a mobile (WAP) website that offers much more than simple chat.
Here’s what’s new (from the press release):
The new WAP service provides mig33 members access to all existing community services and features, and now also allows users to create and participate in member blogs and forums. The service will also host expanded versions of mig33’s immensely popular migWars game and provide additional user avatar options. mig33’s new AJAX web application allows customers to participate in the community directly from the desktop, and includes new chat, avatar and user interface offerings.
For the record, mig33 was founded in 2006 and has grown to almost 40 million registered users almost exclusively by virtue of its Java (J2ME) application, which currently works on more than 2,000 different mobile phones. Looking forward, the company expects to unveil additional handset and operating system options in coming months.
