Microsoft re-launches local mobile search

Microsoft said today that it has launched the new MSN Mobile, a wireless phone portal that allows people to access a number of Windows Live properties.

The mobile portal, available here, includes

easy access to Windows Live Hotmail, Windows Live Messenger, Windows Live Spaces and Live Search.

Because it’s developed for the mobile phone, MSN Mobile is designed to help Web pages appear easily on a small cellphone screen.

MSN Mobile will provide acccess to news and sports, financial charts, local information with movie listings and reviews, local weather, and Live Search to find phone numbers, addresses, and maps and directionst on the mobile phone.

The new portal will have more graphics and look more like a Web site on the PC.

The portal is set to be available on most phones with Interent browsers that use WAP 1.2 or higher. A complete list of devices is at this site on the PC.

Sounds like the application will be free to users, especially since the press release says the portal will have advertising using Microsoft adCenter and the recent ScreenTonic acquisition. MSN Mobile will provide mobile operators with syndication capabilities and the power to provide customers with relevant and helpful advertising links.
