Pocket Guide?

A report from the Bookseller says Dorling Kindersley has got together with Mobile Systems to enable its top 10 Eyewitness travel guides to be downloaded to mobile phones and other handheld devices.

The first 10 guides include London, Rome, Paris, Amsterdam, New York and Barcelona and users go to www.mobisystems.com to purchase the information.

The guides will be available on a number of mobile platforms, initially Symbian S60, with others including Windows Mobile, Smartphone and Blackberry, to follow.

Watch this space for more on how much it will cost and whether you can choose what you download.

I think that making travel-related information available on mobile phones is brilliant. The more information that is available the merrier.
I've been using Google Maps and Windows Live Search on my Windows Mobile phone while traveling, and have found some great places to eat, see, and shop as a result.
