AOL today launched a new service for the AOL portal subscribers can access through carriers. Users can now use AOL to access websites formatted for desktop browsers on their phones. When requesting a page, either through the "Surf the Web" link or by selecting a search result, AOL will reformat the page before delivering it to a phone's browser. Users will first receive a page with the main content of the site, including all text and reformatted graphics, and a link to a separate page with the site's navigation sidebars. The service is initially available through Sprint but should be added to additional carrier portals soon. Google offers a similar service through its mobile search page and a separate browsing link.
