Mobile phones, Virtual Reality

builds_courtyard.jpgVodafone is planning to launch itself as a mobile operator in the game Second Life alongside its Vodafone Island area within the popular virtual world. Second Life users will be able to use branded handsets to call each other within the world, as well as send text messages.

There’s no news on how much it’ll cost to use the virtual mobiles (who knows, perhaps they’ll be free…), but it’s the first time a big mobile operator has announced plans to extend into a virtual world in this way.
