On Sunday Microsoft relaunched its MSN Mobile portal with a brand new design enhanced to draw mobile phone Web surfers:
Microsoft’s new MSN Mobile portal — http://mobile.msn.com — offers news, sports information, entertainment features and access to services like e-mail, search, maps and instant messaging all on one page.
When a user accesses the portal, the MSN platform detects the handset and optimizes the site for that device, adjusting things like font sizes for different screens.
There’s lots of competition among Web portals for mobile phone users and Microsoft is trying to stay in the running and/or join up with the phone operating companies on their own portals. The full press release has more details on the features.
