Nokia Unstacks the Deck in Mobile Video
Nokia has been embedding video links in its new-ish N95 handset pursuant to a deal with News Corp., Sony Pictures, and CNN, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
This allows video to be streamed from those companies' sites without being included on the carriers' decks, or menus. Content companies find those decks to be expensive, and crowded, pieces of real estate.
In separate news, Nokia is buying mapping data company Nav-teq, a major player in that field.
