New frontiers in wireless technology

Were you looking for just the right excuse to get a Blackberry or video-enabled cellphone? Wait no more.

Naked News anchors have already stripped down to bring news in the buff to the Internet and the television in more than 172 nations; now Naked News producers are looking to conquer the world of wireless.

The Naked Broadcasting Network, which offers daily news read by all-nude female broadcasters, already has its broadcast beamed to more than 1.4 million hotel rooms in North America, the Caribbean and Europe and on passenger cruise ships. The network has struck its first wireless deal. A partnership with Icemobile BV in the Netherlands calls for the delivery of Naked News content to wireless phones and handhelds.

"Wireless is the next great frontier," says Naked News executive producer David Warga. "Our product is perfect for this medium because it provides short clips of relevant information in a most entertaining package."

Naked News says it is in discussions with other wireless companies to distribute its content, but further details were skimpy.

No pun intended, I'm sure. Here's their press release. Via the Dave Barry blog.
