Nokia has continued its push into the mobile content space via a deal with Italian-based company Buongiorno, which claims to be the world’s largest mobile content group with agreements with over 100 operators worldwide. According to reports, since confirmed by both companies, Nokia will add Buongiorno’s ‘BlinkoGold’ mobile content portal to ten of its handsets, including the N95, N70 and N82, and accessed via Nokia’s ‘Download!’ application. The deal is understood to be a revenue-sharing agreement, which will see both parties receive income from video, music, graphics and games downloaded from the site.

According to the Financial Times, the service will initially launch in Italy, followed by Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, Austria and France, and then US, China, Russia and Brazil. Nokia has signed similar deals in the last couple of months with operators Orange and T-Mobile.
