Nokia Here on iOS

Nokia Here is a navigation app originally designed on Windows Phone,however,Nokia now has decided to expand it into iOS and Android free of charge.I believe a lot of iOS device users will definitely like it because Apple maps is still quite lousy in a number of places.

Nokia Here supports both iPhone and iPad with iOS 4.3 or later.The map is based on well-known NAVTEQ’s resources.It also supports community map in some countries so that users could add missing information by their own,updating the maps faster and more accurate.

The details of the features:

Upon my personal experience,I found Waze actually has more complete road information in Malaysia.Anyway,as Nokia Here is just born,it supposes to grow to be better in the coming future.

The Android version of Nokia Here is still under developing.I hope once it covers all major mobile platforms with more users,the map can become a strong competitor to Waze.

Nokia Lumia 920 & 820

Nokia is experiencing a bad period and they are now trying hard to recapture some market shares.Yesterday,Nokia, cooperating with Microsoft,released their latest WP 8 phone Lumia 920 and 820.

Nokia Lumia 920 has a PureMotion HD+ 4.5″ screen with 332ppi for clearer and brighter display.It powers on Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core 1.5 Ghz Processor and Adreno 225 GPU(the same as HTC One XL),Nokia PureView 8.7 megapixels Camera,NFC and Wireless charger.

Let’s check out the official introduction:

I think most people are more interesting in the PureView Camera as it’s said to be working very well in low light environment with super wide angle.However,as the software of the phone is still under testing stage,I can’t get any samples now.

Talk about Nokia Lumia 820,actually it’s 70% of Nokia Lumia 920 with a bit lower specs.

The wireless charging shells have several colors to customize your phone.

You can check out the details of Lumia 920 and 820 in the official sub-sites.Up to now,no prices were revealed.I think they want to wait for new iPhone first,then only draft out a price which could compete with it.Is that a smart move?I don’t think so because it could waste some time advantage to occupy market shares.I just wish that Nokia will make the price really attractive.
