AfricaNews.com launches mobile website
AfricaNews.com has launched a mobile news website: http://m.africanews.com. This latest innovation follows an unprecedented mobile phone revolution in Africa in the past years. The mobile version of AfricaNews.com makes the company one of the few African media outlets to both source and publish content via mobile devices.
The mobile website is unique as it is the only mobile service dedicated to broad news on Africa. As internet on mobile devices flourishes in Africa the company has again taken the lead to serve new and emerging audiences.
This website is optimized for mobile devices and gives a clear overview of the latest news submitted by the more than 400 AfricaNews.com reporters who report from 35 African countries. Visitors of the mobile website can also send in their own news tips and contributions to the editorial team by using the ‘News Tip’ application.
This mobile website is realised by GNR8, a student company of the Hogeschool Inholland, based in Haarlem, the Netherlands. The students work on different creative projects for companies in their region.
