Mobile Device Could Revolutionise Reporting

A leading news group is working with Nokia on the development of a handheld device which aims to transform reporting on the move.

Reuters states that the journalism application combines smart phone technologies with software which enables journalists to file multimedia packages from far-flung regions of the world.

The news agency also reveals that its tech teams have developed an in-house interface for the system so filed stories can be instantly published online, reports Press Gazette.

“By running on handheld devices, rather than on bulkier laptop computers, the mobile journalism application enables us to create complete stories and file them for distribution, without leaving the scene,” notes Nic Fulton, chief scientist at Reuters.

“This saves us time and benefits our audience by ensuring that they receive high quality news that is absolutely up-to-date.”
