[Microsoft launches portals and publishes the first numbers to access the SMS text message version of Hotmail.]

by Lucas van Grinsven , London -- "Microsoft said on Wednesday it has launched mobile versions of its MSN Internet portal in Europe which are specifically designed for the small color screens of handheld computers.

"Two mobile MSN portals in France and Germany, for Pocket PC computers that have access to the Internet over a Wireless LAN or a mobile phone network, went live on Wednesday. British and Spanish versions will launch in coming weeks.

"The launch means that for the first time a broad range of MSN content (...) can be accessed from mobile devices," Microsoft MSN said in a statement.

"The portals will have special web addresses that are different from the URLs that MSN uses for its portals that are viewed on a large personal computer screen.

"The U.S. software company, which has set itself ambitious goals to become a services and software provider to the wireless industry, also published the first usage numbers of the SMS text message version of its web-based email service Hotmail.
