WorldPay, the online payment processing company in Cambridge, has joined with software firm Roundpoint to provide mobile newspapers.
Latest news on the move
The Times, Daily Telegraph and The Independent have already signed up and daily editions are being transmitted to PDAs for readers on the move and unlikely to pass a news stand.
WorldPay's online subscription payment makes the whole thing viable for the newspaper publishers, and readers need enter their credit card details only once.
Kevin Salaman of Roundpoint says: "From both a customer satisfaction and an income opportunity perspective, the need to offer subscribers a high quality mobile newspaper edition can no longer be ignored by the major media players."
Sky Holidays is already using the new service, which is based on speech recognition technology.
