AOL gets more serious about mobile market

AOL looks like it is finally getting more serious about the mobile Internet space rather than dabbling in the market by trying to modify its existing applications for the market. First, it announced a mobile browsing service that automatically adapts Web pages for mobile screens, which will be integrated into the existing suite of mobile AOL Search services. Next, the company announced it is expanding its relationship with Sprint, brining its mobile portal services to Sprint subscribers. The one-stop-shop gives subscribers access to the newly enhanced mobile AOL Search, AIM, AOL Mail and AOL Pictures services as well as AOL's news, entertainment, sports and weather content. And lastly, AOL's MapQuest launched MapQuest Navigator which, in partnership with Telmap, provides full-color maps and turn-by-turn navigation instructions by voice, graphics and text.
