Today, MySpace announced the launch of MySpace Mobile. It's a free mobile beta version of its popular social networking website. Anyone with an Internet browser on their mobile cell phone can access the site at mobile.myspace.com.

The site is supported by advertising banners (2 to be exact), to help support the cost of MySpace Mobile. According to MySpace you can send and receive messages and friend requests; comment on pictures and profiles; post bulletins; update blogs; find and search for friends; and view or change mood status. According to them you cannot upload pictures to your profile from your phone. I'm expecting this to be a Phase II rollout.

I'm not quite sure how much MySpace Mobile will be used by its over 100 million members. In my option it is a step in the right direction towards the future of cell phone mobile connectivity. The future of the Internet and mobile technology mashing together is prominent and evolving right before our very eyes. All of the major players are thinking of exciting new ideas to launch their products on mobile technology. In a recent article, Google opens a new door with AdSense for Mobile.

Fox says that they will also be offering free ad-supported mobile versions of their web sites AskMen, IGN, FoxSports and RottenTomatoes.com in the coming months.
