BPL Mobile has launched an off-portal WAP site at wap.mizone.bplmobile.com, reports TechTree. I just accessed the WAP site via Airtel GPRS. They’ve got ringtones, games, TV, cricket, humor, astrology and messaging, among other things. All content is available for a price. I wasn’t able to download a video – got an “Error: Invalid” message, probably because I’m on an Airtel connection. Apparently, the site streams video if accessed from a supported handset. The site timed out thrice for me, and it’s a real pain typing a URL as long as wap.mizone.bplmobile.com. I also don’t understand why BPL Mobile would launch an off-portal site when the content apparently can only be purchased by BPL Mobile users.
Update: Just received a release as per which, the portal is for BPL Mobile users only.
