I’ll split up the Nokia Conversations post as there are a few key things from the article.

We have been waiting for a long time to see that great new camera app come to our Lumia devices. Finally, we have some more info, a release date. Over at NokConv, they have announced that the improved camera features will be coming soon. “This will be available in Marketplace for the US and China by June 22nd. It will be available for all other countries in July.” The new features include;

  • Smart Group Shot: Capture great group shots in just one attempt by choosing the best faces from a burst
  • Action Shot: Capture fast-moving action shots with just one click and significantly improved shooting speed
  • Panorama: This new control feature makes it easy to capture beautiful panorama shots by finding the image in the sequence
  • Self-timer: Set up your Lumia on a stand and get yourself into more photos

A new app known as Contact Share will also be coming. This does what the title suggests, shares contacts easily. The app will allow you to share via SMS or Email. I didn’t even know my 800 couldn’t do this :/  Also, there is a new data counter app, known as Counters, coming to the Lumia range. It allows you to set-up limits, particularly helpful if you have restricted minutes or data. Like the Camera App, these will come to US and China by June 22nd, and available for all others by July.

PlayTo, something great that our Symbian devices have been using, is coming to WindowsPhone. It is something I have actually missed (luckily I have my N9 for all my DLNA needs) and I think it will help with those transitioning from Symbian to WP. Like the Symbian version, PlayTo works over the same simple DLNA sharing principles. This will be coming to the WP Marketplace globally by June 22nd.
