Filipino-owned system integration firm MDI is set to launch its first international subsidiary, a content provider catering to multi-media downloads from Hollywood celebrities.
MDI’s “œBlogstar” (www.blogstar.com) will feature multimedia content uploaded by Hollywood celebrities, which include SMS, picture messages, video and audio clips that can be viewed from the site and downloaded to a multimedia phone.
The name “Blogstar” is because the content uploaded is a mobile blog accessed by paying subscribers. Despite the INQ7 article title, the service is not just about Hollywood people. They have celebrities like athletes.
The MDI group gained its mobile experience from Wolfpac, a mobile content company sold to Smart. The company was also the owner of Meridian Telekoms, likewise sold to Smart and is now the backbone for “Smart WiFi.” The group is also no stranger to digital content, as they own Microwarehouse, the iPod distributor.
