Nokia announces development partnership
22 April 2009 — 5:00 PM
Nokia has announced a partnership with the University of Southern California (USC) that could benefit users of its latest phones.
The company's Hollywood research centre has unveiled a framework agreement with the institution to identify and develop new ways in which devices can interact with web technology.
As part of the deal, a new laboratory will be set up to consider a range of different approaches to enhance mobile internet services including media and entertainment technologies.
Ulrich Neumann, professor in computer sciences for the USC's Viterbi School of Engineering, said Nokia was clearly committed to advancing its interactive media offerings.
"It's a great opportunity to work with visionary companies like Nokia that are investing in breakthrough research in visual recognition techniques for use on mobile devices," he added.
One of Nokia's latest phones - the N97 - is perhaps one of the most anticipated of 2009 and has been described by the manufacturer as "the world's most advanced mobile computer".
