Google has announced the addition of Google News to their mobile offerings, bringing the informational goodness of Google News to your Blackberry. On the Google News Mobile site Google says that â€œYou can access top headlines, browse through news categories, or search for exactly the stories you want – all in a phone-friendly format thatâ€™s easy to read and navigate. All you need is a web-enabled phone.â€
Like most Google offerings, Google News Mobile is debuting in Beta mode and also like Google News, Google News Mobile works by sending the end user to sites which are hosted outside of the Google MoBorg – making it a news gateway. Currently Google News Mobile is only available for access to English language news sources, but Google is planning on expansion.
Unlike the desktop browser based version of Google News, Google News Mobile does not list all of the sites in the Google News index. Instead, Google News Mobile links only to publishers with pages specifically designed for viewing on mobile phones – which is plenty reason for publishers to now offer a mobile friendly version.
