Noticeably absent from this redesign craze are news organizations. We’re not aware of any mobile news sites built specifically for the iPhone.
However, there are some interesting independent attempts at merging the iPhone and the news: NYTimesRiver.com compiles RSS feeds from major news organizations; iActu (pictured) is a virtual newsstand that links to individual stories. And, Tap2It has compiled a list of mobile-friendly news sites — though most were designed for any mobile device, not with the iPhone’s unique user interface in mind.
Any other great examples we missed?
