Campaign Tracker, for Politicos on the Go

ClickZ_Campaign08.jpgWith the election year upon us, some voters may want to get their information and coverage of the big event wherever they go. Microsoft is looking to capitalize on voters looking for breaking news by sponsoring a free Campaign Tracker application for Windows enabled Mobile phones..

NewsGator is providing its Mobile Reader system and widget services, while the news organizations and Newsweek will update the political news via RSS feeds. Campaign Tracker was created by NewsGator’s Software-as-a-Service division which handles syndication services, and Microsoft’s Mobile2Market program. It’ll run on Microsoft Windows Mobile 5 and 6 devices, as well as Microsoft Pocket PC devices. The service itself will go online early next week.

Post updated to correct the application’s name from Candidate Tracker to Campaign Tracker.
