Telegraph's First UK Publisher To Launch Google Android App

The Telegraph has become the first mainstream publisher in the UK to launch an application for the Google Android platform as part of its Telegraph Labs list of projects.

When the Labs was launched back in April 2008, the first project that was launched was the development of a mobile version of Telegraph.co.uk which the Android application will allow access to.

Readers will be able to view latest news, finance, sport, travel and motoring news from Telegraph.co.uk (you can view a picture in The Guardian's media blog (opens in new tab)).

Users will be able to download wirelessly the application from the Android Marketplace (opens in new tab) as soon as the phone is released in the UK by T-Mobile on the 30th of October.

Speaking to BrandRepublic (opens in new tab), Edward Roussel, Digital editor at TMG said that the company wanted to serve its audience in as many ways as possible.

The Telegraph relaunched a mobile version of their website (opens in new tab) back in August 2008 together with a host of news widgets targeting both desktops and mobile users.
