Blockbuster Mobile coming soon to a handset near you?


Blockbuster CEO James Keyes has fallen in love with being able to watch movies on his BlackBerry. So much so, in fact, that his company is now in talks with handset makers like Nokia, Motorola, and Samsung about ways to get Blockbuster movies onto cell phones everywhere.

Keyes has been watching movies downloaded from Movielink (which Blockbuster acquired not too long ago) that are then transferred to a memory card inside his BlackBerry. He wants the process to be as easy as possible for consumers but hasn’t quite yet figured out the logistics. I might suggest a "mobile" setting from within Movielink and an option to download movies directly to 3G-enabled phones.
