Oh Mobile

Mobile porn continues to grow ever more popular. It's only a natural part of the evolution of any technology. Since time immemorial, any new innovation from the printing press to the video camera and any other new way of distributing images ends up being used to make porn. From iPods to PSP and of course, cell phones in the case of sites such as Oh Mobile, the world is changing even if some cellular providers are shy to admit they're the first in their nation to give direct access to smut on the go.

If you've never lived in Canada, you might not know that has much as Canadians are adamant that they're different from Americans, being so close to the USA is at times an easy way to justify controversial trends. According to the Globe and Mail (02/06/07), Telus Mobile is using the old, everyone is doing it excuse for having recently launched the first direct access to adult content on their Canadian cellular market.

To be fair, they're halfway truthful since obviously their competitors on the Canadian cellular market do provide internet services and as Telus spokesperson Jim Johannsson points out, "The reality is it's already out there on today's handsets that are equipped with Internet browsers."

However, other Canadian cell phone giants Rogers Wireless and Bell Canada do not provide direct-marketed adult content yet. The Telus content costs between $3 and $4 Canadian for downloads of porn pics and flicks. A credit card serves as its form of adult verification meeting Canadian legal standards. Parental blocking of said content provides further safeguards.

Telus had received 135 complaints from offended customers who do not support the move according to Mr. Johannsson. He made no comment regarding whether any of the disgruntled consumers cancelled their services with the company besides stating that he expects it will be a "small fraction" of subscribers. That gives me a chuckle since in Canada, most cell phone users are under two or three year contracts that have early cancellation penalties of sometimes two or three hundred bucks.

Talk about a captive audience. Nevertheless, it won't be a bed of roses for the new service, I know. Having already worked in the customer service department of cellular phone service provider, I'm well aware of what happens when a new pay-per-use service is launched. There will be lots of people with huge bills bitching that they would never, ever even think of looking at porn let alone pay so much money for it. Those same folks were the first ones back in the day to say that they didn't know that each of their 40 new ring tunes were costing $2.99 each.
