Reuters To Put Mobile Journalism Toolkit to Test

It looks like the mobile journalism toolkit we blogged about last month is ready for its first big test.

MocoNews reports that a Reuters reporter will this week embark on an experiment to report the arrival of Tesco in the US with little more than a Nokia N95 mobile phone:

“The news agency has been using the mobile journalism toolkit, developed through close partnership with Nokia, for a couple of months now, but mostly to have TV reporters shoot video for the web – now a text reporter will file to the wire from LA and Las Vegas using the handset and a Bluetooth keyboard.”
