In addition, RSS feeds keep the user always up to date with his/her preferred news provider.
Virtually unlimited flexibility is provided to customize the personal start-page. The user can select from a large set of top internet services, focus lies on optimal mobile usability. In addition, any bookmark can be added.
The mobile media store also has been updated. All content, such as apps, music, ringtones, games and eBooks can easily be browsed and obtained. Additionally, in selected countries customers can directly access self-service to check account balance or top up their credit.
“Our aim is to deliver the best mobile internet experience to our customers based on great networks and devices, affordable and transparent data plans and easy access to services. We already recognized a 60% year on year increase of unique active users on our mobile start page,” explained Rainer Deutschmann, Senior Vice President Mobile Products, Deutsche Telekom AG. “Next to the apps explosion, we see an equally amazing growth in mobile internet optimized web services available through ever more capable internet browsers. Our new web’n’walk service is designed to facilitate access to those mobile internet services, with a usability known from the smartphone apps. On this platform, we will continue to deliver the most exciting and relevant internet services, information, and contents to our customers.”
