VRT launches beta version of DeRedactie & Sporza Mobile

Yesterday, the flemish VRT launched the beta version of the mobile site for their news site DeRedactie and the sports section Sporza.  After the launch of De Standaard Mobile, this is the second large mobile news initiative in Belgium. You can visit these beta versions at m.beta.deredactie.be and m.beta.sporza.be.

The mobile internet site of De Redactie visualizes on its first page the latest headlines.  A drop-down menu leads to other news articles in the sections politics, economy, culture & media and the regional sections.  Interesting feature is that you can listen to the latest news bulletin and the latest newspaper headlines.  Too bad this feature is hidden so deep in the drop-down menu.

Sports news is separated into Sporza Mobile, but can be reached via the top navigation of DeRedactie Mobile.  Same concept there: latest headlines and pictures on the first page, other sections in the dropdown menu.

DeRedactie mobile also contains the latest updates on weather and traffic info in pure text form.   The weather map and the traffic jam map (filekaart) that are visualized on the website have disappeared on the mobile version.
