Nokia Releases PhotoBeamer App for Lumia Phones
Nov 30, 2012, 10:34 AM by Eric M. Zeman
Nokia today announced a new application for the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 called PhotoBeamer. PhotoBeamer lets people more easily send photos from their device to a large screen for sharing. Lumia device owners interested in sharing their photos must install the app on their phone and use the app to scroll through their photo gallery. Then they need to open PhotoBeamer.com on a PC or other device. The web site reveals a large QR code. The phone-based app can scan the QR code and then automatically uploads the selected images from the phone to the web site, where they can be viewed on the PC or display. PhotoBeamer works over 3G, 4G, and Wi-Fi. The technology that makes the app work was acquired by Nokia when it purchased Scalado.
The Lumia 820 is a welterweight contender in AT&T's smartphone lineup. It packs a powerful three-punch combo with LTE, Windows Phone 8, and an 8-megapixel camera.
Nokia pushes all sorts of boundaries with the Lumia 920, its feature-laden flagship smartphone for AT&T. If the luminescent colors don't attract you, the big screen, LTE 4G, and dual-core performance might.
Nokia debuted two new Lumia smartphones today and Phone Scoop had a change to take a close-up look at the new hardware, both of which are running Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 platform. Here are our initial impressions.
