Manga comic surfing on the go

Over in the land of the rising sun, where paper is already so passe, Sony is planning to almost triple the number of popular manga comics offered for cell phone use. According to Business Week, for 315 yen ($2.90) you can download up to three manga titles out of 300 a month.

Quote:
Cell-phone comics use a technology called Comic Surfing, developed by Tokyo-based venture firm Celsys, which takes viewers through manga stories at a carefully calculated speed and sequence. The manga frames are specially formatted to fit on tiny mobile phone screens. Pop-up frames and vibration during action scenes add to the drama. Cell-phone comics with preprogrammed sound effects are also coming soon, said Toppan Publishing spokesman Katsunori Onishi.
Thanks Gadgetguru for the tip!

This is interesting, so of course it comes from Japan. I've been looking into getting manga on my Zodiac, but it's difficult to get a size that's legible and not super-scrollable.

It'd be great if this could be ported to the PDA, still incorporating the pop-up frames and the rumble effects. I'd even consider subscribibg to the manga feeds...

Being a bit of an anime fan, I've always wanted to try manga, but never really taken the time (and opportunities to purchase out here in the stix are few). I'd like to see something like this for PDA's as well.
