Most Register readers will be aware of Good News Holdings, and its Christian-based content portal for mobile phones.

Since January this year FaithMobile (slogan: "Have you talked to God today?") has pumped out Bible verses, ringtones, and inspirational audio and video to mobile phone-carrying Christians. It has now teamed up Crisp Wireless to offer subscription access to their content.

Martha Cotton, director of FaithMobile, said Crisp will give the firm a wide range of options: "The whole idea of putting this type of content on the mobile phone is to make that device a portable sanctuary - and Crisp Wireless helps us do that."

The enhanced subscription service starts on 8 September, and a portal aimed at teenagers (FaithXL) launches later in the year. ®
