Newspaper companies have been providing online services to readers through the online newspaper for the last decade. Today, the newspaper companies are facing many challenges when readers start to access information via Mobile Internet by using various mobile devices such as mobile phones or personal digital assistants (PDAs). Thus, a major concern in the industry is on creating a usable mobile portal to serve the increasingly diverse array of devices used in Mobile Internet. The mobile newspaper development framework (MNDF) is a framework created (i) analyse the existing services of online newspaper, (ii) outline an appropriate design approach for mobile newspaper, (iii) develop a mobile newspaper application and (iv) evaluate the usability of the mobile newspaper application. MNDF aims to provide useful guidelines to newspaper companies before marching into the mobile Internet market with minimal effort.
