[photopress:it_mobiole_information.jpg,full,alignright]China Finance Online will partner with China Telecom, a wireline telecommunications and broadband services company, to provide financial information services to China’s broadband users through a new Web channel.
The two companies will create a financial channel on China Telecom’s Vnet Web site.
China Financial, an online financial data provider, will be responsible for the JRJC-Vnet Finance channel’s financial content and analytical products. China Telecom will distribute the products, with both companies splitting revenue.
China Telecom will distribute CFO’s products through the Vnet portal as well as its over 10 thousand business halls.
What it then comes down to is the chances of success of this system — very high — will be linked to the ability to view it easily and quickly on mobile phones. And that will come down to when we will see G3 or, possibly, G4. This service will do well running just on the Internet and being accessed from computers in offices. But where the extra money will come from is being able to access the information on your mobile.
