‘More than 600 soccer games live’
“We are very happy with our new mobile website”, says Patrick Salien, site manager of Nieuwsblad.be and Nieuwsblad Mobile. “We succeeded to not only offer general news and showbizz, but also sports and regional news in a very relevant way. For all 308 Flemish communities we give news articles, with of course a separate approach for our city issue De Gentenaar, which can be found on http://m.gentenaar.be. On top of that, our sports editors cover yearly no less than 180 cycling days, more than 600 soccer games and a lot more sport events. And all that live on your gsm. A must for the sports lover!”
‘Out tips for everyone in Flanders’
“Another fantastic application is the ‘Uit’ agenda“, continues Patrick Salien. “Based on your postal code and/or the kind of activity you’re interested in, you will receive a list of movie and theatre screenings, among others. From now on, all that information will be available anywhere, anytime.”
“With this, Corelio takes another step into the mobile internet, after the successful launch of De Standaard Mobile and Jobat Mobile. These projects as well were completely worked out by our own people with MobileWeb.be as integration partner.” says Johan Mortelmans, Director E-Media at Corelio.
Nieuwsblad Mobile is a free service. Of course, the mobile users pay for their data connection with their operator. But ever more operators offer interesting formulas that lower the costs significantly. Even more, the mobile site is suitable for every kind of mobile device. You don’t need a sophisticated phone for it.
“Apart from the high information value for the user – fast, everywhere and anytime – this is a very targeted medium for our advertisers. With this medium they will be able to reach a very specific and interesting audience. The version that was launched today is 100 % ready to get the advertiser and the consumer in touch with each other”, adds Stijn Vercamer, Commercial Manager E-media at Corelio.
