Print Roundup: WSJ Europe Goes Mobile; Evening Standard’s Homes & Property

Two more digital moves from printed newspapers today, one in mobile for the Wall Street Journal and one online for The Evening Standard:

The Wall Street Journal is launching a mobile site for its European edition. Bucking against the current app craze, this site will be usable on any web-enabled mobile device, regardless of the make. The site, says Neil McIntosh, the editor of in a release, will update “as frequently” as the rest of the Europe edition of the online site. A subscription to the online site will be required for access; non-subscribers will be able to read previews. The paper has also launched a dedicated mobile portal for its Asia editions in China and India. WSJ also has apps for BlackBerry and Apple (NSDQ: AAPL) devices. Update: Articles that are free over on the desktop website remain free on the mobile website.

The Evening Standard is re-launching its property portal, The online companion to the property supplement of the same name in the printed edition of the London paper includes an enhanced homes search with real-time updates of the listings, and it is part of the Standard’s larger strategy of commercialising more of its content now that the circulation of the printed magazine is free.
