Cellphones to add cartoon characters

By Published on .

[Shanghai, China] Time Warner's Turner Broadcasting System will introduce Cartoon Network characters such as Tom and Jerry, The Flintstones, and the Powerpuff Girls on wireless products in China, in a deal with Linktone, a provider of value-added wireless services to China Mobile and China Unicom customers. Starting in early 2004, mobile users will be able to pit Tom in battles against Jerry, personalize handsets with picture messages and screen savers and send friends animated pictures. Users can preview and purchase icons at a Cartoon Network's wireless Web site, paying per download or by monthly fee.
