The ESPN Hub app, which provides scores, states, news, video highlights and other content, will be launched in early 2012 on the new Nokia Windows Phone.
The ESPN Hub app will be pre-loaded on millions of Nokia Windows Phone handsets reaching up to 190 countries worldwide, according to the announcement made at the Nokia World conference in London.
Developed in tandem by the companies, the app is designed to automatically deliver localized content to users in various part of the world. Users will also be able to fully personalize the ESPN Hub so it features the sports they find most interesting.
"This unique collaboration between our two companies on the ESPN Hub has been a truly global effort that will see us continue to work closely together in the months ahead," noted Russell Wolff, executive vice president and managing director, ESPN International. "Nokia not only provides a great distribution platform, but they're also a driver of innovation, which allows us to create an experience that enables ESPN to better serve sports fans around the world."
