teaser_link.gifReuters has launched a mobile news service offering global news stories to mobile users in the UK and the US, as the news service aims expand its mobile audience.
The free service delivers the top ten news stories written by Reuters correspondents in 200 bureaux around the world. Each story is illustrated with pictures from photographers on the scene. The firm said that some 73,000 people a month in the UK, US and France already access Reuters news on their mobiles and PDAs via a service available on AvantGo.

The top 10 news stories, accompanied with full colour photos, are continuously updated so you can keep up-to-date on the news making headlines.

Reuters mobile news is free of charge but will incur your normal operator GPRS tariffs. No other subscription charges apply.

Unfortunately, Reuters seems to not have heard about Windows Mobile Pocket PCs and Smartphones because right now you get a message, that this service isn't available for your handset (on both - Pocket PC and Smartphone) while I'm sure Windows Mobile's Pocket Internet Explorer is good enough to display the news.
The current list of supported devices is pretty focused on "standard" mobile phones only. :-(

Cheers ~ Arne

No, it isn't. At least I get an error if I enter mobil(e).reuters.de.
Anyway, even if it would be available I couldn't access due to the handset limitation and the missing Windows Mobile support. sad
