NETikos, a Telecom Italia Group company specialized in services, and products for Mobile Internet, has developed NewsLoader presented by Nokia at JavaOne, the most world’s important Java Developer Conference (San Francisco, 25-29/03/02).
The NewsLoader - Newsreader for Nokia 9210 - allows the user to download the latest news to his device to read offline. The news sources can come from servers on the Internet or servers in closed networks based on IP. Modules for different services are created using some simple Java API.
The NewsLoader will be available in two different versions: in the Light Version, without server, the software is installed directly on the Nokia 9210; in the Standard Version the client selects the news directly from a server in order to personalize the user’s press review.
