Hong Kong, <20 November 2019> – KaiOS Technologies, maker of KaiOS, the leading mobile operating system for smart feature phones, today announced that Disney’s timeless storytelling and beloved characters will be coming to millions of smart feature phones in the form of fun wallpapers and other content through the KaiStore.
The content will be optimized for the KaiOS platform and will feature a host of themed wallpapers, graphics and games from Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars.
“Our mission is to close the digital divide but that doesn’t stop at making devices and connectivity affordable; we must also give everyone access to the same amazing entertainment, a space in which Disney is an absolute leader”, said Sebastien Codeville, CEO of KaiOS Technologies. “Disney has had a profound impact on entertainment, and giving its creations a home in the KaiStore enables users everywhere to marvel at the latest superhero series or take a trip down memory lane with the all-time Disney classics.”
KaiOS enables a new category of affordable smart feature phones that require limited memory, while still offering a rich user experience. It supports 3G and 4G/LTE, Wi-Fi, GPS, and NFC. Disney’s content joins popular apps and services like Google Assistant, WhatsApp, Facebook, YouTube, Google Maps, and Twitter. The Disney content will become available on KaiOS later this year in Vietnam, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand and India. All new digital Disney content will be available to purchase via KaiPay, KaiOS’s in-house online payment solution.
Kai has shipped more than 100 million devices in over 100 countries. Together with its partners, Kai aims to bring mobile connectivity to the billions of people without internet in emerging markets, as well as providing those in established markets with an alternative to smartphones.
