Video: Nokia N97 showcases touchscreen news app at Web 2.0

SAN FRANCISCO, USA – Last week Conversations editor Charlie Schick was out at Web 2.0 expo 2009 in San Francisco, shooting clips of some of the coolest stuff from the show floor. One of the lesser-seen slivers of software was a smart Associated Press (AP) touchscreen news app, slated to launch in May to coincide with the opening of the Ovi Store, primed for use on the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic and then the Nokia N97 in June.

We witnessed the tactile Associated Press news app in action, demoed by Kate Butler from the AP. It features a slick interface for engaging with the latest news and photos – you can even caption their images with comments or share pics. Click through to watch a video of it in action on the N97.
