Nokia continues to push ahead with their services strategy. Yesterday the company bought Navteq, today they announced new content partners for their Nokia Video Center.
Nokia announces deals today with CNN, IBN, Jamba, Sony Pictures, RooftopComedy, ROK and Versaly Entertainment.
The Nokia Video Center offers Nokia Nseries users one simple place to discover and access the best choice of mobile video content via 3G, WiFi or PC.
Users can switch easily between a range of different video services choosing from branded on-demand video, internet video podcasts and their own favorite videos. The Nokia Video Center is available on the Nokia N95 and Nokia N95 8GB.
If the services play will pay off for Nokia is not clear. With video services like this they take over tasks carriers have done so far. Nokia calls their services eco system OVI since August. Somebody will have to pay the bill and I assume Nokia will want to charge carriers to offer these value added services to their users.
