The Wall Street Journal Online at WSJ.com, a paid subscription news site, and Summus, Inc., a provider of mobile media applications, have announced the launch of a new mobile edition of The Wall Street Journal Online. Developed by Summus, "The Wall Street Journal Mobile" is intended to provide up-to-the-minute business and financial news from the Online Journal, along with market, stock, and commodities data, plus personalized portfolio information-directly to a cell phone. "The Wall Street Journal Mobile" will be available via most major U.S. wireless carriers beginning in early 2005 for a monthly subscription price of $3.99, billed by the carrier. "The Wall Street Journal Mobile" will be available on both BREW and Java 2 Micro Edition (J2ME) platforms, and the application will be downloadable to phones from the carriers' wireless application catalogs.

The Online Journal offers two industry-specific editions: the Health Industry Edition and the Media & Marketing Edition. The Health Industry Edition offers analysis, breaking news, and commentary from industry journalists. The Media & Marketing Edition is designed for professionals in the advertising, marketing, entertainment, and media industries. Subscribers to both online editions also get access to the full content of the Online Journal.
