This year Nokia is releasing a number of new products and upgrades, showcasing their on-going technical development activities. Nokia’s aim of reaching a wider audience and introducing some useful new features and capabilities is good news for users. One family of products they are concentrating on is their Lumia smartphone models, their Windows Phone range. Along with the launch of their new Lumia 610 smartphone model, they have also announced three new developments in apps for users of the Lumia range.
Each is designed to further enhance user experience of their Lumia smartphone by providing useful, time saving features. The Nokia Transport app, available to Lumia users for the first time, provides door-to-door underground, train and bus directions for over 500 cities across 46 countries. It also provides timetabling information for more than 80 cities, helping users to estimate their total journey times.
Nokia Transport is available in March. The latest update of the Nokia Drive app, their free voice-guided navigation app for the Lumia, turns your smartphone into your own personal navigation system. The upgrade will provide full offline use and has a handy speed limit alert feature. This update will also be available in March. The Nokia Reading app aims to simplify access to entertainment features for Lumia users. It forms a central hub making it faster to connect to a user customisable mix of location relevant news, e-books and audio books.
Already planned future updates to this app include the ability for users to create their own magazine style content combinations. This will enable users to organise all their favourite online content into a multi-content group and view it conveniently through just one channel. Nokia Reading will be available from April. These and the full range of Nokia apps are available to download from Windows Phone Marketplace, or if you are just looking for a nokia visit http://www.phones4u.co.uk.
