MySpace has forged an exclusive European partnership with Vodafone in a development which will enable the wireless carrier's customers to remotely view and edit their MySpace profiles.

The deal, unveiled Wednesday (Feb. 7), heralds Fox Interactive Media's first expansion of its MySpace subsidiary into the European mobile space. MySpace currently has tailored online sites serving France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom, it addition to its "global" community site.

"The Vodafone partnership underscores Fox Interactive Media's commitment to extending its network of websites to mobile devices on a global basis," commented John Smelzer, senior VP and GM of mobile for Fox Interactive Media, in a statement.

"Our goal is to empower our audience to connect and interact with our sites whenever and wherever they choose, and we're off to a great start with Vodafone."

The offering will initially go live in the United Kingdom, before rolling out into other European markets. Vodafone, which is recognized as Europe's biggest player in the mobile telecommunications sector, recently said it had crossed the 200 million global customer milestone.

Going forward, the MySpace Mobile interface will be pre-loaded on selected Vodafone cellphones and will be available to download from the multimedia Vodafone Live portal.
