Disney Mobile Start Holiday Promo

Disney Mobile, the MVNO started by Disney and aimed at kids and parents, may have been feeling some heat from MobileESPN’s closure, and is trying better ways to market itself: it has started a holiday promo by lowering the cost of its handsets and offering a month of service for free, reports RCR…also, it will offer users a free month of service if they sign on by Dec. 31.
Among other plans, it plans to soon release a limited edition “Steamboat Willie”-themed handset, a silver flip phone with a cover that has an illustration of the black-and-white first cartoon incarnation of Mickey Mouse.
TechDirt has a fairly cynical view on the whole issue.
