Read the BBC News website on the Underground

You never hear much about the BBC News Select java application for mobile phones. It’s an excellent micro-browser, which pulls in the full text (and lead picture) of the top few stories from your choice of BBC News sections (including individual football teams). I’ve found it especially handy on the Tube; if you can get a signal long enough to get an update, you can still read the full stories when the signal drops. It’s free, and it’s compatible with loads of java-friendly phones.
