Widget and Datawind roll out month long advertising campaign.

If your idea of an exciting read on the tube platform is something more than a Jack Daniels advert about the properties of oak barrels then you are in for a pleasant surprise for four weeks starting on April 21st.

From Hadley Wood to Burnt Oak, and from Bluewater to Bayswater, a new poster campaign on the Underground, rail stations and roadsides is bringing news of an extraordinary mobile web browser, the PocketSurfer2, to the travelling public in the South-East.

The PocketSurfer2 has a 640 x 240 colour screen, perfect for browsing the web, which allows users to read their favourite newspaper online, their email, blogs, their Facebook or other social networking websites, to look up stock prices, or Ebay bids, all for free.

Widget UK the distributor, chose the outdoor media campaign as a natural way to get the message across about a mobile web browsing product.

“Outdoor media is the perfect choice for the PocketSurfer2, promoting the benefits of low-cost mobile web browsing right where people will want to be using it” said Marketing Director, Mathew Jones.
