The Sun launches .MOBI website

The Sun logoIt’s not what I’d call the thinking man’s, or woman’s, newspaper, but The Sun is obviously thinking ahead in other ways by launching their .MOBI site.

I’ve not been able to check out if it includes access to their ubiquitous page 3 girls – I do seriously have better things to do sometimes – but The Guardian, a somewhat more august journal, assures me it does. Along with a simplified version of the Sun’s webpage, it includes access to the top 10 stories in news, sport, showbiz and Sun woman, as well as Mystic Meg horoscopes.

The Guardian goes on to explain the cost – no, The Sun aint being altruistic with this – and note one “can also download Page 3 girls and videos, ringtones and virals. Downloading videos and wallpaper costs between 25p and £3. Page 3 wallpapers cost £1 and Page 3 videos between £2 and £3.

“Text alert services include news, sports, showbiz, football, Mystic Meg, lottery results and racing tips, with each alert priced at 25p. A text from dating service The Love Match costs 50p and racing tips cost £1 per text.”

Anyone game to admit they didn’t have something better to do and actually checked out the website on their mobile device of choice?
