Verizon Wireless update lifestyle mobile portal
Verizon Wireless has announced the availability of Mobile Web 2.0 which allows customers to access news, tools and information content and read and send e-mail on their mobile phones. Available for use on select phones, Verizon Wireless’ Mobile Web 2.0 comes with new features and enhancements, including new graphics, easier navigation, clickable headlines and premium content. The service is similar to Vodafone live! and O2 Active portals.

The Mobile Web 2.0 home screen is VZW Today, which is an up-to-the-minute look at the news and hot stories that Verizon Wireless subscribers need to know. It also features several innovations, including a toolbar that allows customers to easily access the search tool, their favorites and bookmarks, or easily return to the homepage. Updated throughout the day, VZW Headlines stay current, providing the latest news and information.

From VZW Today, users can enter into various content categories in one click, including:

News – Top national, business, world or political news
Weather – Local and national weather forecasts and satellite images
Sports – News, scores, standings and stories from the top professional and college sports.
Entertainment – Information about movies, music, TV, food and astrology
Business – Business headlines, news and stock updates
E-mail – Web-based e-mail services from the top Internet e-mail providers
More – Shopping, travel, health, jokes and much more

In addition to Verizon Wireless’ content offering, customers can also access content from many branded content providers. Verizon Wireless customers can also access premium content that is available at an additional charge.

The Mobile Web 2.0 service is provided in conjunction with two key suppliers. InfoSpace Mobile is providing hosting, infrastructure and subscription management capabilities. Vindigo Studios is providing design and custom publishing for the service.
