As you know I was at TechEd this year in Atlanta. I helped at the Innovation booth, my job was to demo Mosaic by Tribune. It has officially been announced today. As announced today in the post, ““Tribune Releases Mosaic App for Windows 7”, on the Windows Team Blog, Tribune Company today unveiled the final release of Mosaic by Tribune. Mosaic is a free, customizable application that offers a rich news reading experience optimized for Windows 7 touch-capable devices including Slate PCs. Mosaic enables readers to enjoy aggregated premium content from Tribune’s own world-class news operations, including the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Baltimore Sun and many others. It also allows readers to integrate RSS feeds from their favorite sites and blogs to personalize their news experience.
Much of the content and user data for Mosaic by Tribune is powered by Windows Azure, making Tribune one of the largest Windows Azure implementations and storage accounts worldwide.
Though optimized for Windows 7 touch-capable devices, Mosaic by Tribune will also run on any computer with Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7. Mosaic is also available as a companion experience on the Windows Phone platform, offering the same rich news reading features and functionality found on Mosaic for Windows.
