AOL Germany CEO Charles Fränkl says in an interview that the company will launch a mobile phone service in Germany in 2006.
The mobile phone service is aimed to be an extension of AOL's internet platform. AOL users will have access to AIM, photo albums, blogs and more via the AOL mobile phone service.
Helio (site), launched in the United States by EarthLink and SK Telecom in May is following a similar concept. Helio's 3G mobile services give you access to mySpace and other internet services. There is no word yet as to whether AOL will also enter the mobile phone business in the United States.
More details in the Berliner Zeitung (German).
