Posted: 25-Apr-2002 [Source: AsiaBizTech]

[Companies to test "JALAN navi Sapporo" location base service in downtown Sapporo for three months offering a variety of city-related information users can access from KDDI's mobile handsets.]

Tokyo -- "KDDI Corp., Recruit Co., Ltd., Recruit Hokkaido JALAN, and NEC Corp. on May 20 plan to start offering the "JALAN navi Sapporo" information delivery service on a trial basis for mobile phones using positional information in downtown Sapporo, a major northern city in Japan, for three months.

This service will deliver by e-mail information on tourism, word-of-mouth information, hotels, etc. depending on the time, location, and taste of the user, and allow one to retrieve such information from a Web site that can be browsed from KDDI's mobile phones.

Participating users will be collected through "ISIZE JALAN," Recruit's travel site (in Japanese). The users will be able to lease KDDI's "GPS Ketai" terminals at no charge if they so choose. The test service will provide the location information of the user's current location or the shop the user is heading to on a map screen. Video pictures also will be distributed as part of the contents."
