Microsoft Windows Mobile Sponsors Launch of Mobile News Sites
Washingtonpost.Newsweek Interactive (WPNI) has launched three new mobile Internet sites, building on the company's award-winning Web publications, washingtonpost.com, Newsweek.com and Slate.

The company says the launch signals the start of WPNI's mobile services initiative to expand access to in-demand news and feature content that is updated around the clock.

With the launch of the new sites, users of mobile phones and PDAs that are Internet-enabled can take washingtonpost.com, Slate and Newsweek.com with them wherever they go, and access up-to-the-minute stories.

The new sites are built on WAP (wireless application protocol) technology for wireless communications whose principal application is Internet access from handheld mobile devices.

The sites, which are platform independent, are available at no additional cost to users. There is no fee or registration requirement for any content on the sites.

The new sites may be accessed at mobile.washingtonpost.com, mobile.slate.com and mobile.newsweek.com, respectively. Content display and formatting is optimized for handheld mobile devices. In addition to daily editions of content from the publications and Web site, the new mobile Internet sites provide access to 14 days of archived content for Washingtonpost.com and Slate, and 30 days for Newsweek.com.

Additional functionality will be added in coming weeks to include greater alert options, e-mail and additional photographic content.

The launch is sponsored by Microsoft Windows Mobile.
