Hardy Boys go Mobile
« on: July 28, 2008, 08:34:49 PM »
I am still looking for more information, but it appears that the Hardy Boys graphic novels are now available via one's mobile phone. 

This site is the distributor: http://www.gocomics.com/comicbooks

I am personally not into the whole mobile phone craze, but there is obviously a market out there for it.  I use my phone for talking when needed and everything else can be done on my computer.  But maybe that is just me getting old.  :) 

Anyway, I am still trying to get information from someone at Papercutz as well, so hopefully we will get some information soon.

I don't even know how people can do the whole checking the e-mail thing and replying unless they have one of those advanced phones with bigger screens and more buttons for letters :-\

For shorter messages, I guess, but wouldn't it be annoying to scroll down that many times?

I believe that Amazon has several HB books available for the Kindle, but not graphic novels for obvious reasons.

I saw these mobile Graphic Novels a few months ago. I wonder if SkyWarp will get anymore info on them.

Does anyone now if you view the comics one frame at a time with these, or do you see a whole page at once? One frame at a time would be slow but I'd kind of like it, cause I hate it when I glance over and see what happens on the next page before I can read it.  ::)

I would think that it would be one frame at a time, otherwise, how would you be able to read the text of two pages on a 2 to 5 inch screen.

I wonder how that works with full page spreads.

I was playing around on iTunes and found the first 3 GNs divided into 2 issues each and sold as apps. I don't have an iphone/iPod touch though so I geuss I can't get them.
