Associated Press to Launch Mobile News Network

MediaPost reports that The Associated Press is expected to announce today the selection of Verve Wireless to provide the technology for the AP Mobile News Network, an advertising-supported, multimedia news service tailored to cell phones:

“Debuting later this quarter, the network will provide mobile users with a single point of access to local, national and international news. It’s the first product released by AP’s Digital Cooperative, an initiative designed to find new digital outlets for the news and information.”

The report said that the network will include local, national and international news as well as vertical content from the AP, such as sports, entertainment and business news.
