MySpace Mobile Web

MySpace today announced a new, free version of its social networking site, dubbed MySpace Mobile Web. The service allows almost any cellphone with a web browser to access the majority of the features of MySpace without requiring the paid clients and special software that are often needed to use the service on the road. Users can send or receive messages, handle requests, and update their blogs; the entire service is kept minimal and can even disable profile pictures or other images when bandwidth is too much of a concern, MySpace says.

The Web edition of MySpace Mobile is currently in an open beta and is optimized for particularly small screens, but should work with the iPhone and iPod touch. MySpace and its parent company Fox currently run the site without ads but expect to gradually roll out content over development to help maintain free access, similar to the desktop page. The new page is not expected to have an impact on custom clients made for Helio and other major cellphone carriers.
