Vodafone to launch mobile MSN Messenger

Vodafone inked a deal with Microsoft to launch a mobile version of MSN Messenger, starting with a beta in July. The service will operate like MSN's traditional IM client, but for an extra fee. Vodafone and Microsoft say they have forged a long-term partnership around MSN Messenger, though the agreement is non-binding. The new service will launch first in Italy, Spain, and the Netherlands this year. There is no word yet when Vodafone plans to launch the service in other markets.
