The Mobile MySpace

Tocmag, a free service that allows anyone to create mini-magazines and mblogs for mobiles, has just launched in the UK.
Tocmag is talking about “the mobile MySpace” – the magazines can be filled with up to six pages of text, photos, audio and even video, and they are reputedly very easy to create.
Once downloaded, Tocmags are automatically stored on the phone’s memory so that they can be read anywhere offline.

Brad Ells, Tocmag’s founder, thinks this is what mobile users have been waiting for. “People will now be able to create and store content-rich messages on their mobiles, full of text, photos and even videos. It certainly beats SMS or MMS messaging.”

The market for mobile user-generated content (UGC) services like Tocmag will be worth $13.2bn market by 2011, according to recent research from Informa Telecoms and Media and the Mobile Entertainment Forum.
