Nokia, the phone giant, has joined forces with CNN, the most trusted source in journalism, to deliver contents and mapping services for CNN news network, globally. Together, the two companies will work to improve news generation, gathering, and deliver them while considering the consumers location. The key part is that through this partnership, Nokia phone users can access CNN news easily and that news customized based on their locations.
Nokia has entered a cooperation deal with CNN to provide mapping services for the U.S broadcaster while Nokia users will have access to news reports on their handsets.
The world’s largest handset maker, Nokia Corp., said Thursday the two companies began their cooperation at the April 29 British royal wedding when CNN used Nokia’s 3D maps across its platforms.
“The collaboration harnesses the companies’ strengths in global newsgathering, user-generated content, mapping technologies, and location-based services,” Nokia said. “We are pleased that CNN wants to use Nokia’s innovative mapping services for its international news platforms and we are excited to work with CNN to deliver a compelling news service to users of Nokia phones.”
Nokia smartphone owners will be provided a CNN “app,” or application, that will give them access to CNN’s world, business, sport, entertainment and technology reporting, as well as live streaming video. This is already available in the Nokia Ovi where it can be downloaded immediately.
