Vatican news available on handheld devices


This week the Holy See Press Office has launched its daily information service on handheld electronic devices.

The publications available on the devices are the Bulletin of the Holy See Press Office and the Vatican Information Service. The information is intended for journalists covering news from the Vatican.

The service was demonstrated by representatives from Telecom Italia Mobile on the BlackBerry integrated phone, email, web and organiser device.

The Vatican is offering the service in association with Telecom Italia Mobile (TIM). In January, it signed an agreement with TIM to offer brief messages (SMS) incorporating the Pope's words or the saint of the day.
