Welsh Ex-pats Carry Wales on Their Mobile Phones

Share Article

A new Web site has been launched to bring a touch of Wales to the mobile phones of ex-pat Welsh people living away from home.

MobileFfon.com (http://www.mobileffon.com) was created after the founder, Russell Davies traveled overseas and discovered just how many people with Welsh blood there are outside Wales but how few reminders of home there were.

"As I visited places like South Africa, USA and Australia I kept meeting people who had strong links with Wales and they all said how much they miss home and how passionate they are about showing their roots," comments Davies.

"The one thing that is evident is that there is very little Welsh merchandise that you can buy outside Wales apart from the obligatory Welsh rugby or soccer shirt," he continued.

With the number of mobile phone owners reaching 80 percent of the population in these countries, he quickly realized that a Web site could offer Welsh mobile phone content to the huge number of Welsh ex-pats. That is where the idea for MobileFfon.com came from.

The content available from Mobileffon.com includes ring tones, wallpapers, and animations, with much more content to be added in the near future. Much of the content is official licenced material from organisations such as The Welsh Rugby Players Association.

Now, ex-pat mobile phone owners can carry a picture of home or their favorite Welsh sporting hero with them, or just display their Welshness with the Welsh flag or the flag of St. David.

Mobileffon.com (http://www.mobileffon.com) is sure to be a hit with mobile phone owners home and abroad as, whatever your roots, Wales has a special place in your heart, and now also on your phone.
