Telegraph mobile site goes free

Here's an article - from The Guardian - informing us that rival newspaper The Telegraph is offering a free mobile site for readers to access from 3G and WAP-enabled phones:

Telegraph.co.uk is switching from a paid-for to a free mobile content offering with the launch today of a new version of its site offering news, sport and travel articles for readers to access from 3G and WAP-enabled phones.

The new mobile site will carry images alongside text stories and will be updated with breaking news automatically throughout the day as Telegraph.co.uk adds new content.

Telegraph.co.uk's new mobile service will be free to access, beyond the web-surfing changes demanded by mobile operators, and is intended to complement the news, football and cricket alert services already offered by Telegraph Media Group.

The mobile website retains the distinctive gothic masthead but with a simplified navigation to make it easier to access lead stories. The launch version will not carry adverts, although they may be introduced to the site as it grows.
