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.

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.
