Oneindia, a leading online network of Indian language portals, has launched WAP version of its English, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam portals, which will enable viewers to get ‘information on the move’.

These WAP sites offer news and classifieds, TV listings and theatre show timings in English, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam. They also offer national, international, sports and entertainment news, along with a complete guide to TV programme schedule and free online classifieds on housing, jobs, goods and services for sale from top Indian metros. Users can also check current show timings at major cinema halls in top six cities in India. Movies are listed by region, language and theatre, stated an official communiqué.

“Mobile phones are revolutionising the way people wish to receive information. According to TRAI figures, Indians prefer to surf the Internet while on the move; one out of every five mobile users in India connects to the Internet through mobile phone.
