ExtraTainment's streaming cartoons can be sent over low to medium speed GSM and GPRS networks, enabling a 3G experience over 2G networks. The content of ExtraTainment is aimed at a younger audience, is not tied to any language or culture and is therefore extremely suitable for the global mobile market.
