T-Mobile intros web2go

T-Mobile on Thursday announced the introduction of its web2go mobile Internet service for the provider's data-connected phones. Web2go is said to enhance web browsing and improve web searches via the use of Yahoo! oneSearch and a customizable home page that makes access to favorite locations on the web quicker. Online shopping and downloading are also said to be improved. The new interface is meant to improve the web browsing experience especially on non-smartphone devices. It will make viewing and navigating web pages easier.

The new interface allows customers easier access to browse and purchase ringtones, games, wallpapers and other applications and services for their handsets. A My Downloads section saved on the web will allow users to install their downloaded content on a new handset. Web2go is available now on most T-Mobile handsets, with nearly all models covered in the coming months. Owners of existing handsets from the provider will receive an automatic update to web2go.

Also today, T-Mobile said it is introducing several new simplified data plans that will bundle options for Web, e-mail and messaging for compatible phones and devices, although it hasn't outlined the specific pricing.
