The New York Times offers news for mobile phones

The New York Times has teamed up with Vindigo to offer its news service through Verizon Wireless… [textually.org]

I actually saw this today on a Samsung BREW phone as well as the other apps from Vindigo Studio: Moviegoer, Vindigo and Mapquest. Things look good, and the apps perform as you might expect, but slowly. The phone is just not as fast (no where near) as the Palm and the screen is s serious limitation. That said the resolution was excellent and you are able to leave certain aspects of content cached on the phone in order to enable it if you are not connected… Vindigo has focused on the color screen based phones so if you have an older model, time for an upgrade. This should be available through the Get It Now! menu with Verizon.
