Free mobile site access to select sites on Vodafone until end of July
Vodafone New Zealand is providing free access to mobile versions of partner sites, including Bebo, Facebook, YouTube, Wikipedia and auction site Trade Me.

Vodafone has teamed up with Trade Me to give mobile customers access to the country’s number one website from their Vodafone live! enabled mobiles. Customers can log on to their Trade Me accounts, check watch lists, bid on items, view items won or lost and keep up with the play on auctions they’ve started

Users will be able to keep up with online auctions from any Vodafone live! capable mobile in New Zealand.

This selection of the most popular internet sites are free to browse on Vodafone live! to 27th July.

Vodafone’s General Manager for Media and Entertainment, Charlie Clementson, is delighted to launch this service on Vodafone live!

“Customers want to access Trade Me on their mobiles so they don’t have to sit by the computer all day long watching auctions. Now they can take the auctions with them when they leave the house. It really is mobile internet in action.”

Clementson says the deal with Trade Me is just the beginning of the mobile internet revolution.

“Customers can also access Bebo, Facebook, YouTube, Wikipedia and shortly we’ll offer users the ability to search the internet via their mobile with Google on Vodafone live!”

When asked for comments Vodafone clarified that this offer applies only to the mobile version of these sites.
