Nova Expands Mobile Service

Major eikaiwa school chain Nova has tied up with KDDI's au mobile phone service. "Nova Keitai Ryugaku" was launched yesterday for au's 17.5 million EZWeb users, adding to the millions who have had access through NTT's DoCoMo since last July. The service costs ¥315 per month plus access charges. Among the several subcategories of the service, Nova uses news from the AFP network to create contents in 10 categories such as business and sports; a user can have their English level checked by the famous Nova Usagi (rabbit); travel phrases; crossword puzzles; and a view of Japan through the eyes of Nova's foreign teachers.
