cnn mobileLike many news providers CNN have launched their new and updated version of CNN mobile, this new version is available to everyone from 1st March, unlike the previous version, yet the new CNN has more than just news stories, it has a whole variety of other service which include a five day weather forecast for over 1000 cities around the world, which is handy when traveling. There are also Sports, Technology, Business, and Entertainment news, which give the user basically the whole news package, as it would be provided on their websites and news channels.

The new service is targeted at the Europe, Middle East, Africa and Latin America (NEMA) which is a massive marketplace for the CNN group to be marketing their product to, something that they have not really bothered with in the past, it appears that the management at CNN have seen that there is a huge potential in these areas.

The up to minute news, there are two minute video bursts, which cover news stories and can be downloaded and viewed on most new or newish mobile phones, these reports are only about 600 KB in size, so there should be no problems with downloading etc.

The site has been well though out, with thumbnail images of the top or interesting stories, when these are clicked on they will expand to full screen which enables the view of the full story, for people who do not want the images or who have older mobile phones, CNN have not left them out, so there is the option to see the news site in a text only version, which is faster load and easier to read on older devices, but not nearly as cool as the full version with the images etc.

The beauty of this international version of CNN is the fact that it is not totally dominated by US news, now there is nothing wrong with US news and considering that most things that happen in the States tend to have some sort of an effect on the rest of the world, but the international version does cover more countries and gives the user a more balanced view of what is going on in the world of business, news, sport, science and entertainment.
