Six new devices, together with a host of new apps and experiences, were announced today at Nokia World in Abu Dhabi, bringing exciting innovations across Nokia’s line-up of products and services.
What’s been announced? Too much to fit in one post! Click through on the links to see the full story on the announcements below.
The Nokia Lumia 2520, the first Windows tablet from the company. It combines high speed connectivity together with an excellent screen and signature imaging experiences.
The Nokia Lumia 1520 and 1320 bring the Windows Phone experience and unique Lumia design to 6-inch screens. They’re not just bigger – you can now see more Live Tiles in an extra column, for faster access to information and apps. The Lumia 1520 boasts a powerful 20-megapixel PureView camera.
The Asha 500, 502 and 503 bring the latest version of the new Asha platform to a stunning new industrial design, with a better camera and a range of capabilities including 3G.
Nokia’s signature experiences and apps are improved and expanded with Nokia Camera on the Lumia 1520, and new tablet apps for the Lumia 2520. And look out for Nokia Storyteller, Nokia Video Director and Nokia Beamer, helping you make the most of your videos and images.
HERE experiences get an update too! Now with LiveSight in HERE Drive and HERE Drive+ you can easily locate your parked car, while in HERE Transit it will be easier to find nearby transit stations. And with the Lumia 2520, you’ll never be lost again as it comes with integrated HERE Maps, making it the only tablet in the market with true offline maps experience!
The third-party apps line-up for Lumia is significantly boosted with the arrival of the exclusive Dreamworks Animation Dragons Adventure, the Instagram photo editing and sharing network, Papyrus and InNote, which both offer handwritten note-taking solutions, and the Vine short-form video service from Twitter – available soon!
On the Asha Platform, we announce the arrival of the WhatsApp instant messaging service, and Line, another choice for keeping in touch with your friends. PicFeed, PicTag and PhotoFunia add to the options complementing the new improved camera and enhanced user interface.
And let’s not forget accessories, with two cool additions. The Nokia Power Keyboard is the ideal companion for the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet. It protects the device on all sides, adds a keyboard and extra USB ports, and packs in an extra 5-hour battery. Second, our new wireless charging plate, the DC-50 offers mobility, allowing you to charge up your phone without plugging in – it’s wireless charging reinvented!
Of course, as well as today’s stories, we’ll be digging deeper into all the new devices, experiences and apps in the days and weeks to come.
