The Canadian Press has teamed up with CTVglobemedia, Torstar, Transcontinental and The Associated Press and released a mobile portal for the latest national, international and local news. I guess they felt jealous that Viigo was creating the trend before them.
Anywho… if you prefer to get your news from these fine people, head on over to http://news4mobile.ca and http://nouvellesmobile.ca from your mobile phone. You will be able to “search, save, share and rate news and photos personalized to their choice of postal codes and topics, selecting news from their hometown, business destination or favourite cities from categories such as business, sports, hockey, entertainment, technology, science, travel and wacky news.”
Eric Morrison, President of The Canadian Press said “It’s important for Canada to have its news leaders band together in providing a single access point for comprehensive mobile news. We are all excited to introduce the country’s ultimate mobile portal that gives Canadians the fastest, widest coverage of local, national and world news stories, pictures and soon video and photo galleries from many respected providers.”
