EB To Offer Wireless Downloads
Starting in December 2004, Electronics Boutique will start offering wireless downloads of games for bluetooth-enabled cell phones in some of their locations. There will also be free content available such as game trailers (read: commercials). When someone walks within 30 feet of one of the kiosks while carrying a compatible phone, a message will pop up on the phone screen, inviting them to the download booth. There is no information about pricing yet, but there will likely be free trials available for many of the downloadable games.
