Microsoft has officially launched a new version of its MSN Mobile portal, which was created to allow users to access its services while on the go.
The New MSN Mobile gives users access to email, news, sports, entertainment, local movie listings, maps and directions, as well as Windows Live services such as Windows Live Hotmail, Windows Live Messenger, Windows Live Spaces, and Live Search.
The latest version of this portal offers new technologies that customize the experience for each user's device.
"We believe consumers want to see their favorite Web sites optimized for their mobile phones, while having them remain easily accessible and free of charge," said John Smelzer, senior vice president and general manager of mobile for Fox Interactive Media. "FOXSports.com is an integral part of MSN.com, so extending that experience to the mobile Web makes perfect sense."
FOXSports.com serves as this portal's exclusive sports channel in the U.S..
The new MSN Mobile is now available in the United States. Future worldwide markets will follow throughout 2007. Customers interested in using it can go to mobile.msn.com on their mobile phone Web browser.
