AOL launches browsing service for mobile phones
AOL has launched a new browsing service for mobile phones. This service, which will be available to subscribers through wireless carriers, will reformat web pages so that they are accessible through mobile phones browsers. Each web page, requested through the "Surf the Web" link or by selecting a search result will be reformatted. What users will see on the screen of their handset is the main content of the requested site, including all text and reformatted graphics as well as a link which will lead them to a separate page, containing the site's navigation sidebars. AOL isn't the first company to offer such service. Google already offers a similar one. AOL's mobile browsing service is currently available through Sprint, but is expected to be added to other carriers' portals as well.
