We already reported that Microsoft would launch MSN Direct for Windows Mobile phones. Now MS has released the official details.

"This is the first time MSN Direct content has been made available to mobile phones, and it is a strong next step for the delivery of MSN Direct content where customers have said they need it the most," said Eric Lang, general manager of the MSN Direct initiative at Microsoft. "We are excited about the opportunities this new application will bring to mobile operators, consumers and the industry."
The MSN Direct content is supplied by a number of leading partners, including Foreca Ltd. for current weather information, Comstock Resources Inc. for stock prices, and MSNBC for the wide gamut of news offerings.
The MSN Direct application is free to download; MSN Direct requires data connectivity from a wireless carrier, which may charge additional fees. Consumers should check with their wireless provider for its coverage areas and service fees.

Currently the MSN Direct application for Windows Mobiles is just a technology preview. You can download it here.

The Mobile World Congress 2008 (former 3GSM) will open officially on the 11th of February. We will keep you updated on all interesting mobile technology announcements at the MWC 2008 in our Mobile Phone section.
