Nokia signs video deals Finnish cellular phone manufacturer Nokia has inked deals with seven major media producers to bring Streaming video content to their cellular phones. The most recent deals were signed with big names such as CNN and Sony Pictures to provide high-end content to their high-end phones.
"Consumer desire to watch Internet videos on mobile devices is growing all the time and we want to help users discover and access the best content in the simplest way possible," Harri Mannisto, director at Nokia's multimedia unit.

Other video providers on the list include India's IBN news Channel, Jamba, RoofTopComedy, ROK, and Versaly Entertainment. These newly signed deals will begin streaming data to Nokia's N95 model phones in the very near future.

This deal is of course in addition to the existing deals Nokia had signed to stream Internet video content from the likes of Google YouTube and Reuters.
