Toronto, ON (PRWEB) September 24, 2008
Viigo Inc. (http://www.viigo.com), developer of the popular mobile content and services platform for smartphones, announced today that it has entered in to a partnership with the Yorkshire Post to deliver its news and information to BlackBerry and Windows Mobile smartphones.
Life in the information age has generated an expectancy of immediate access to news. This has caused publishers of traditional media such as newspapers, magazines and other print materials to broaden the method by which they deliver their content. Most have created websites that allow internet users to browse and find the information they are looking for. Because people have further adapted to having news delivered to them, a new wave of information push is taking hold.
PC's have historically been the only method by which people have accessed the internet and retrieved what they were searching for. This, however, is rapidly changing with the evolution of mobile communications. It is the marriage of the expectancy of information push and wireless connectivity that has publishers of all variants looking for a solution for delivering their content to mobile devices.
