Just because its Disney Mobile MVNO failed, that doesn't mean Disney is giving up on selling mobile content to tweens. The company last fall launched a mobile Web site that acts as a clearinghouse for all Disney mobile content. It also started experimenting with mobile marketing campaigns.
Now the company is taking its mobile offerings a step further. Next month Disney will debut a registration system that will allow users to access their Disney.com profiles automatically via their cell phones giving them access to their online content. Soon after, the company plans to launch a digital storefront that will give consumers the ability to purchase Disney games, ringtones and wallpapers from their phone and add those purchases to their cell phone bill.
