Abstract: Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple, while introducing his first generation smartphone on January 9, 2007 in San Francisco had claimed: This will change everything (Leader, 2015). Now after 10 years, smartphone exemplifies the early 21st century defining technology. It is not, because the smartphone is today the fastest selling gadget and about half the adult population owns a smartphone , it has absolutely changed the way news is gathered, processed and disseminated in the newsrooms (NRs) of the newspapers, TV news channels, radio stations or web portals and also how it is consumed.

There was a time when it took days, weeks, months or even years to reach the news from one place to the other through messengers and pigeons, but now it takes only a second for any news to reach from one part of the world to the other.

Not only print, the satellite based TV news channels also are losing to the web. The media houses whether print or TV that timely gain a solid web base will thrive. The choices of readers are also changing. A total of 72% news consumers in the study desire personalised content and 84% l
