mixi provides "Social Phone" combining SNS and smartphone for Softbank /CNET Japan

mixi starts to provide Android application, Social Phone, making easier to use mixi on smartphone for Softbank Mobile devices. Social Phone links mixi and smartphone to display all update information in mixi such as mixi voice or diary, and also automatically synchronize telephone directory and friends on mixi.

By June, it plans to add My mixi (friends) request function using Felica. Between Felica-enabled devices, users can request My mixi by just holding their devices over each other.

  • It is interesting that mixi launches with Softbank first rather than NTT Docomo or KDDI which have more Android users. Softbank is an exclusive seller of iPhone in Japan, even though it also sells Android.
