    Over 500 newspapers in the palm of your hand

    PressDisplay.com launches for BlackBerry

    NewspaperDirect Inc. today announced that the world's largest online newspaper kiosk, PressDisplay.com, is now available on all the latest BlackBerry devices, including the new BlackBerry Curve 8300, the BlackBerry Pearl 8100, and the BlackBerry 8800.

    PressDisplay.com provides online digital replicas of more than 500 newspapers and magazines, from 70 countries, in 37 languages, making it an indispensable news source for anyone that wants multiple perspectives on the news. A 'one-stop shop' for the world's most prestigious newspapers and magazines, including The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal Europe, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Daily Telegraph and The Los Angeles Times, PressDisplay.com provides consumers, libraries, government, corporate clients and now, BlackBerry users, with the widest range of full-content publications on the web.

    Unlike news aggregation sites, which provide a sample of free news stories from a variety of news sources, Mobile PressDisplay lets mobile users read premium newspapers in the PressDisplay.com system in their entirety. Mobile PressDisplay optimizes the news reading experience for mobile handsets, making it easy for BlackBerry users to navigate a newspaper with section listings, auto-jumps that link articles spanning different pages, and easy-to-read text views. Click here for a video demo.

    "As a busy traveler who depends on my BlackBerry more than my laptop when on the road, I need access to detailed news reporting in order to prepare for meetings and conference calls. Mobile PressDisplay puts a wealth of news at my fingertips and lets me keep in touch with what's happening back home," said Charles Kelly, chairman of Canadian Public Affairs Consulting Group.

    Users can browse all 500+ PressDisplay.com publications from their BlackBerry for stories of interest. They can also set up daily monitors on the PressDisplay.com website that look for specific keywords in any or all newspapers and then notify them on their BlackBerry whenever a keyword is published in any PressDisplay.com publication. With one click, they are connected to the referring story, helping them stay on top of the latest news wherever they are - often hours before the story ever hits the news stands in the paper edition.

    "Previously, when facing long car trips as a passenger, I had been downloading full newspapers into the PressReader software and reading them on my laptop," said Craig J. Poff, Esq. of Beaufort/Hilton Head, South Carolina. "Now, I have a BlackBerry 8700 which displays the articles nicely. $29.95 per month is very reasonable for this service -- about the same as what I pay for home delivery of the New York Times."

    "Being informed immediately of business-critical news is essential for busy executives who depend on a variety of news sources," said Alexander Kroogman, CEO of NewspaperDirect. "Mobile PressDisplay turns your BlackBerry into an international news kiosk."

    Yes, noticed that also. I should have mentioned in the original post.

    I couldn't find a link, sent them an email and will post update as soon as I get a reply.

    Thanks
