With the release of the Nokia 1020 and its obscenely high detailed 41mp camera Lehmann Aviation have created an ‘accessory’ take advantage of that.

In one the hands on demos for the Nokia Lumia 1020, I was told that satellite imagery inspired it and certainly from the sample overhead images of New York, you can certainly see the Nokia Lumia 1020 being that eye in the sky (and one can actually zoom into the same picture and see all that detail).

Well, Lehmann Aviation have produced a Nokia Lumia 1020 specific unmanned aerial vehicle that would bring it to the sky to take pictures remotely. I guess video would be possible too?

I tagged Nokia’s Pino in this post because we recently talked about Here Maps and their new high resolution aerial maps. 1020 and LA300 drone for crowd sourcing high resolution up to date Aerial maps! ha


Cheeers Navster for the tip!

BTW this was Navster’s take:

It’s amazing that an application like this, and dedicates build of a drone (!), has already been made for the Lumia 1020. It’s the kind of thing that one normally expects to see for iphone first then slowly trickled out to other devices (normally Android).

But this looks like it has been specifically developed with the Lumia 1020 in mind. Also, the LA300 doesn’t look like a typical toy drone (e.g. Parrot AR drone) but one with some specific industrial applications, making use of the 1020’s high res photographic capabilities. Shame about the price though!

Still, given the timing of this, I wonder how closely Nokia might have already been working with business partners, like Lehman Aviation, behind the scenes in the run up to announcing the 1020. Will we see more interesting ‘accessories’ coming to market soon?
