Nokia has proudly announced a joint venture with Pearson, the world’s leading education company, to accelerate the growth of MobilEdu, a premier mobile phone-delivered education service, developed by Nokia in China. Launched in China in 2007, MobilEdu provides wireless learning directly to your device. One part of the learning solution focuses on environmental awareness. During its first six months, MobilEdu attracted 300,000 users in China and there are still 5,000 more people using it every day. By the beginning of 2008 the environmental content had been downloaded 1.2 million times.
MobilEdu provides English-language learning materials and other educational content, from a variety of content providers, directly to mobile phones. Customers can access the content through an application preloaded on new Nokia handsets, or by visiting the service’s mobile website and most other WAP portals in China.
Robert Andersson, Senior Vice President and head of Corporate Alliances and Business Development at Nokia, said:
“We are proud to have developed a service which is already highly valued. We believe that through this partnership with Pearson, a global industry leader in education, we can offer an exciting future for this service and its customers.”Tags | Breaking News, China, Connectivity, Education, MobilEdu, Nokia, Nokia Research Centre, Pearson, Press Release, R&D, Research & Development, Software
