News channel operator Al Jazeera has launched new applications for Android and Blackberry mobile devices that allow users to access live broadcasts.
The new apps will also allow users to upload content directly. Both are free and aimed at the Arabic-speaking market.
Mohammed Al Mokhtar, head of Aljazeera.net Arabic, said: “There’s been significant demand from our audience to make mobile applications available in Arabic. These pioneering apps ensure Al Jazeera is widely available to our core audience.”
