A unique new service for mobile phones which allows users to create, download and send animated cartoons to mobile handsets, was launched by mixipix in Glasgow.
The mixipix cartoon messaging service allows users to choose from a huge range of animations, or create their own, which can then be sent to their own or someone else's mobile phone handset as a greeting. The cartoons can then be saved and used as an animated screensaver, used in a picture message (MMS) or wallpaper.
The mixipix website offers four different categories of cartoons to choose from: Bad Boys – animations with a bit of an edge, Sugar & Spice – sweet and cute cartoons, Party Animal and Planet Marvin – mixipix's very own hero.
The mixipix technology automatically detects which type of mobile phone a user has and dynamically renders each animation to take advantage of the target phone's specifications. mixipix cartoon messages are created online and can be sent to any WAP-enabled colour mobile phone regardless of type. mixipix can be used over all mobile phone networks in the UK except 3.
