Mobile Journalism: Reuters Mojo

The Reuters/Nokia hook up last year is a good example of using lightweight, simple tools that don’t require a car:

Nokia Research Center (NRC) and Reuters are working together on a mobile journalism project that could transform the way journalists file news reports when on the move.  The new mobile application is the first project to be showcased from a long term research collaboration that has been established between NRC and Reuters.  It centres around a lightweight toolkit that provides everything journalists need to file and publish stories from even the most remote regions of the world. 

Through an ongoing trial that started this summer, select Reuters journalists around the world made use of the mobile journalism application in their everyday work to edit, combine and file text, images, sound and live and recorded video streams, producing and publishing multi-media stories of broadcast quality without needing to return to the studio or office.
