Verve Wireless Gets Win With AP
The Associated Press said today that it has debuted a new, mobile news portal focused on wireless users. The new portal is powered by Encinitas-based Verve Wireless, a developer of wireless software for online publishers. The AP's web application allows users to access international, national, and local news content from the AP and its members. Verve Wireless was selected by the Associated Press as a technology provider for the network, in a deal which was announced last month. Financial details of the win were not disclosed. The AP is providing news from 100 of its news publishers, and also is offering a iPhone optimized version of its news portal.
