Japan's famous Manga comics are to be made available to iPhone users, it was announced this week.

Speaking at the Red Herring conference in Kypto, Japan, Japanese company VoiceBank confirmed plans to bring the cult comics to iPhones later this year.

VoiceBank has agreed a deal with the Digital Manga Association to transform the content into a format the iPhone understands.

The company has developed technology to shrink Manga pages for the iPhone screen, pointing out that users will be able to zoom into individual panels in order to read them.
