Looking for a mobile-friendly version of the New York Times? Just look at this link with a PDA or mobile phone with web-browsing capabilities and you’re all set. The NYT announced the new site this morning, which if you’re into typing on small keyboards can be found at http://mobile.nytimes.com. There’s quite a bit o’ buzz on mobile news content these days, much of it due to Dave Winer purchasing a Blackberry and not liking the current mobile feeds. While some would correctly argue that mobile feedreaders have been around for some time, the buzz of known entities like the NYT and Winer will actually help propel mobile news delivery in the mainstream in my opinion.
The mobile NYT site is very simple and easy to follow, plus the pics are thumbnails that you can tap to see in a larger format. All in all; nicely done. Even with all of the Microsoft Windows Mobile ads. ;) Actually, it’s ads in something as prevalent as the NYT that could help Windows Mobile move in to the mainstream consumer consciousness as well….
