Google News Mobile launches in beta

Google launched a mobile version of its Google News service that allows users with Web-enabled handsets to "access top headlines, browse through news categories, or search for exactly the stories you want--all in a phone-friendly format that's easy to read and navigate." Search results are links for relevant stories from "multiple" sources, but only those that are specifically designed for viewing on mobile devices--a move that should prompt many news sites to get with the mobile program. Users of PDAs, smartphones or mobile devices that can view HTML pages can access the entire Google News index of 4,500 sources the same way as the traditional desktop version. The offering is currently in Beta and is only available in English, but Google says the service will expand to other languages soon.
