Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter announced it has partnered with Nokia to launch the world’s first newspaper phone.

The device, known as DN-Mobilen, is a Nokia 6120 classic 3G running the Symbian OS. Subscribers pay $31 a month for a calling plan and unlimited access to the newspaper’s website.

Though Europe is ahead of the U.S. in cell phone use, it lags behind Asia, and therefore presents a huge opportunity for media companies that can develop an easy-to-use tool for readers. At least that’s the thinking.
