    Hi. Here's a sentence quoted from GEPT Official Guide:

    Businessmen use WAP phones to keep up on the latest news about the stock market.

    I can only find "keep up with something" in my dictionaries. Is it correct to use "keep up on" in this sentence?

    Thanks for the help.

    Hi. Can you tell me are there any differences between these two usages? Thanks for the help.

    In relation to the context that you've posted there's little to choose between the the two, in my view; they both mean to remain informed/knowledgeable about.
