Next hot cell phone trend: picture books?

So over in the land of the rising sun, where reading novels on your cell might already be so passť, there is a new way to pass the time while you're bored on the subway or waiting for the movie to start: flip through picture books on your cell phone. According to Tokyo Mango:

The picture book will be read page by page, like a kamishibai—no scrolling, just clicking from page to page. It will include both popular children's titles and original content. You can buy them online for 100-200 yen each. The company hopes to have 50 titles and 10,000 downloads by September.

The official press release can be found here (in Japanese).
