Cablevision Launches Mobile Portal

Cablevision Systems launched a mobile version of its Optimum.net Web portal, which lets the operator's broadband subscribers access to their e-mail, personalized traffic information, local weather, and TV listings in a format designed for handheld devices.

Optimum.net for mobile is available on all mobile devices with Web-browsing capabilities over all networks, including the iPhone. Visitors are automatically redirected after pointing their mobile browser to www.optimum.net; otherwise the site can be accessed directly at http://m.optimum.net.

Cablevision created the site with Usablenet, a New York-based company that specializes in developing Web sites for mobile devices.
