Mobile Content Bits: Dennis’s Paid-For iPhone App; Absolute Radio; Shazam On Windows Mobile

Dennis Publishing: Dennis’s online lads’ mag Monkey is working on an app costing £1.79, with Android and Blackberry versions being considered. The forthcoming app is built by MobileQ and will feature scantily clad women — but will it get past Apple’s notoriously prudish app approval process which banned The Sun’s planned Page 3 app? Via NMA.

Absolute Radio: The station formerly known as Virgin will launch a live streaming service for BlackBerry and Nokia (NYSE: NOK) handsets, adding to its Android and iPhone carriage deals. The station this month launched a user-programmed online/DAB station Dabbl. From NMA.

Shazam: Song-recognising mobile app Shazam is now available on Windows Mobile handsets via the newly launched Windows Mobile Marketplace. As well as a free version, which allows five songs to be “discovered” per month, users can download a “full-featured” version for a one-off fee which allows unlimited discovery. The app is $4.99 on Nokia’s Ovi store and free on iPhone.
