    Hugh Linehan

    You can now access our new mobile site at m.irishtimes.com. Please check it out and tell us what you think.

    We’ve decided to launch a device-neutral site which will render well on iPhones, BlackBerries, Nokias and everything else. It has breaking news, business and sport stories, and selected content from the newspaper. Some other popular functions, such as Most Read stories and Weather, are also included.

    If you don’t know how to get to your phone’s browser, or you’re having trouble, you can text and you’ll receive a reply with a link. Send a text containing the word NEWS to 51500. Then click on the link in the reply

    If your mobile phone has a web browser built in, and you know how to access it, then you can enter our mobile address, m.irishtimes.com.

    (BTW: m.irishtimes.com is optimised for viewing on mobile phones and may not render well or at all on standard PC browsers)

      Great news.

      One possible update. Could you possibly put a “sections” tab just below the Irishtimes.com banner for easier browsing. Similar to the Guardian mobile site?

      good to see this, but would prefer full iphone app! its a little bit 2002 and sections very limited (no culture, opinion etc) Still, a welcome step in the right direction.

    • Aengus says:

      Disappointed to find that I can’t access the Letters to the Editor this way.

    • Aidybop says:

      Very welcome development but feels somewhat limited in it’s current form. All the same it’s perfect for reading news items.
