CNN and Nokia today launched an international news app for Nokia E7 Smartphone’s, available on the Ovi Store . Free of charge to users globally at launch, the CNN App for Nokia is purpose-built and designed to provide a visually-driven news experience for Nokia E7 users who demand accessibility and convenience, as well as passion for participating in the news via iReport, CNN’s user-generated news community.
“As the world’s largest mobile handset manufacturer, Nokia has extensive reach and scale across international markets,” said Louis Gump, vice president of CNN Mobile. “Nokia users share broad interest in events around the world, and it is exciting to have the opportunity to put the power of CNN at their fingertips, and likewise, provide the chance for them to participate in the news with us through iReport.”
The CNN App for Nokia provides users with one-click access to a dynamic news experience with integrated sharing functionality, delivered through sophisticated technology. The CNN App includes user-generated content upload functionality through iReport, showcases important global news through text, video and photos; and also enables users to watch live breaking news video.
