Amazon.com's United Kingdom site will be available on mobile phones, the company said yesterday. The new service will allow customers to complete transactions on their handset without making a voice call. Owners of Nokia or Motorola Internet phones will be able to access the site, called Amazon.co.uk, anywhere and buy books or music by typing in a user name and password. While wireless Internet phones make up only a small portion of the market in Europe, Amazon said it believes 48 million people worldwide will have a Web phone by 2002.
