Seven Steps to Software Security

Lastminute.com is to provide its online travel service direct to people's 3G phones.

3 UK punters can now use their video mobile handsets to access the latest holiday deals and lifestyle products.

It is the first time that 3 has offered its punters content prepared and managed by one of its partners.

In a statement Andrew Windsor, Group Commercial Director, lastminute.com said, "The partnership with 3 continues lastminute.com's commitment to ensuring that we can make our service available to customers on the communications device which suits them best.

"Customers make impulse decisions all the time and now we have the deals and functionality to allow them to make the most of the lastminute.com service from their mobile phones," he said.

Shares in Lastminute.com continued to rise today buoyed by continued speculation that the one-time dotcom darling could be the subject of a take-over bid.

By late afternoon shares in Lastminute.com were up 3.5p (1.63 per cent) at 218p. ®
