Duo Guo... Mobile Content Retail Store

HatTip to Jai. This concept in China is pretty cool. From Duo Guo's website:

DUO GUO (多果) owns and operates China's leading network of retail stores exclusively selling mobile content and services.

Based in Shanghai, the Company has developed partnerships with China's largest retailers and leading global media companies to bring the best games, ringtones, software and other mobile services to China's 500 million mobile phone users in an exciting retail setting. The Company is privately held and operates as a wholly-owned subsidiary of D Mobile, Inc.

My friend Jimmy thought about starting this type of retail store a few years back, but obviously he didn't execute on it :)

Anyway, Duo Guo seems like a great concept for countries where there is a high level of mobile activity (e.g. gaming, content viewing, location-based services), such China, Korea, Japan, and a few European markets.
