PubMed Mobile and Updated eBoard Slide

In March, PubMed Mobile Beta was released. PubMed Mobile provides a simplified mobile friendly web interface to access PubMed. PubMed Mobile includes the same basic search functionality and content as Standard PubMed; that is, all search terms and fields work similarly.

As of last week, any reference to “Beta” is gone, and users visiting PubMed.gov on a handheld device will be redirected to the PubMed Mobile website.

In addition, the PubMed Mobile eBoard slide has been updated to reflect this change and is available for re-download.
