ChristmasNames — For That Personalized Xmas Holiday

Xmas NametonesMiyow (the developers of Lyricize service I reviewed back in May) have launched a new service in time for the festive season — ChristmasNametones. Based on the same concept of personalizing a songtone the ChristmasNametones service lets you personalize the song “12 Days of Christmas” with someones name (the 2,000 most common english names are available) and different lyrics that are either naughty, funny, romantic or the classic lyrics. So far the service is sold in the UK by Orange (via aggregator ArenaMobile), MediaPlazza, MobileMedia (for the Asia/Pacific region) and RedCircle via print ads in UK magazines.
If you want to have a look on the web, www.singaname.com has the same function and lets you preview the song before you buy, so you can check it out. I have, and it’s pretty cool…
Miyow is also in talks with SonyBMG to license mobile content and record a personalized song with one of SonyBMG’s artists, which could be very interesting… a tentative release for Valentine’s day was mentioned.
