China’s mobile operators have launched a new service that is being hailed as a “game-changer” by some of the country’s biggest mobile phone makers.
According to Chinese media reports, the SMS service will be offered at a price of $0,99 per monthly account.
The service will reportedly be offered in China, Hong Kong, and Singapore.
The announcement comes after the Chinese government launched a slew of new mobile services in March, including a new messaging app and a video streaming service, with more to come.
The new service is expected to offer some of China’s largest mobile operators a significant boost in revenue.
For now, the service will only be available to people who are currently using China’s popular e-commerce platform Taobao.
However, the new service may well be able to take advantage of the fact that Taobox is already the dominant e-tailer in China.
China’s e-shopping giant Taoboy is currently offering a number of services that are already available for free to customers.
The company has also said that it plans to continue expanding its mobile services.
