The mobile sites will carry Al-Jazeera headline news, business reports and sports coverage.
Wadah Khanfar, director general of the Al Jazeera Network, said the services would broaden Al-Jazeera’s worldwide accessibility, offering a portal to people who only access the news via their mobile phones.
Al-Jazeera’s digital presence also includes the delivery of Al-Jazeera video and other content to YouTube, iTunes, Facebook and Twitter.
Users can access the mobile websites by going to <http://m.aljazeera.net/>> for English news and <http://ma.aljazeera.net/> for Arabic news.
Yesterday (15 January), Al Jazeera and The Independent announced a new partnership that will bring Al Jazeera English video news bulletins to the web pages of the newspaper.
The bulletins feature streamed content from Al Jazeera’s news centres in London, Washington and Doha, Qatar and Kuala Lumpur.
