MySpace launched a new mobile site on Tuesday as part of its recent efforts to reposition itself as a one-stop entertainment destination. The site is formatted for Apple’s iOS, Android, Palm and “select Nokia and Blackberry devices.” An iPhone app will arrive “in the coming weeks” that “will provide an experience that is centered on the activity stream,” the company said in its news release.

The new MySpace mobile site is a compact, image-filled collection of up-to-the-minute news, videos and gossip. Like the full website, the mobile site has music items, video and trending entertainment news and celebrity updates. Everything is neatly compiled on the “discover” tab, which has stories, videos and MySpace updates laid across the page like a collage. It’s basically a simplified version of the redesigned MySpace site. It’s easy to navigate and pages load quickly.

One thing noticeably absent on the mobile site is audio streams. Artist pages on the mobile site lack audio streams, and the homepage lacks a single link to an audio stream (although there are many links to videos). The full website, however, continues to have streaming audio from artist pages as well as MySpace Music’s streaming music service.

The mobile redesign is the part of larger changes at MySpace toward entertainment and away from social networking. Last week, MySpace launched “mashup” with Facebook that takes users’ “likes” at Facebook and populates a page at MySpace with relevant music, video, celebrity news and other such items. The move was widely interpreted as MySpace ceding the social networking crown to Facebook.
