Sprint, MySpace team up for special access

Sprint and MySpace Deal

Sprint and MySpace today announced a partnership that will see Sprint's phones get quick access to MySpace Mobile, a streamlined version of the well-known social networking site. Instead of relying on a custom program or manually entering a web address, the main Sprint portal will have a direct shortcut: this will become even more important once a more visually rich and e-mail-capable version of the site is available in the near future, according to the two companies.

Phone users will also have access to a set of related sites from Fox Interactive, such as AskMen, FOXSports, and the movie meta-review site RottenTomatoes. The custom access will be free from any phone that already uses or will use Sprint's specialized front-end. The addition will be accessible on the cellphone service once MySpace Mobile exits its beta stage, which is expected sometime in early 2008.
