Vodafone brings Web 2.0 to the mobile

Vodafone is taking the internet mobile with access to a raft of new Web 2.0 sites, including Trade Me, Bebo, Facebook, YouTube, Wikipedia and Google on Vodafone live!

Vodafone has teamed up with Trade Me to give mobile customers access to the country’s number one website from their Vodafone live! enabled mobiles.

Now you can keep up with the auction for the car of your dreams from any Vodafone live! capable mobile in New Zealand.

A selection of the most popular internet sites are free to browse on Vodafone live! to July 27 including Trade Me.

Customers can log on to their Trade Me accounts, check watch lists, bid on items, view items won or lost and keep up with the play on auctions they’ve started and it’s all free to July 27.

Vodafone’s General Manager for Media and Entertainment, Charlie Clementson, is delighted to launch this service on Vodafone live!

“Customers want to access Trade Me on their mobiles so they don’t have to sit by the computer all day long watching auctions. Now they can take the auctions with them when they leave the house. It really is mobile internet in action.”

Clementson says the deal with Trade Me is just the beginning of the mobile internet revolution.

“Customers can also access Bebo, Facebook, YouTube, Wikipedia and shortly we’ll offer users the ability to search the internet via their mobile with Google on Vodafone live!”
