In a recent development, Nokia has released their first Beta of Nokia Xpress for Lumia. Xpress leverages the power of the cloud to optimize internet browsing to save you data, time and money while you discover and enjoy the latest the web has to offer.
Nokia Xpress is the cloud-based internet service that powers the Nokia Asha series devices. Basically, by rendering web pages in the cloud and minimizing cellular data use, Nokia Xpress allows you to get the most from your data plan.
According to the company, Xpress for Lumia leverages the Nokia Xpress cloud, and marries it with the powerful capabilities of the Windows Phone platform as well as other compelling cloud-services like SkyDrive from Microsoft.
Some of the key benefits and features of Xpress for Lumia include exploring internet platform, which automatically compresses data by up to 85% to use less of your data plan and battery charge. Further, it will support a unique Magazine feature. For example: When you’re on a site with an RSS feed, you’re automatically asked you if you want to add these sites to your magazine.
Once you’ve created your magazine, it presents the feeds to you in an appealing, easy-to-use layout. So when you’re on the train home, you can simply flip through the latest stories with a swipe to quickly and easily read what most interests you.
There will also be a one click language translation feature to translate the page to your language. Just navigate to the page you’re interested in, tap on the ‘translate to’ option in the app menu and select from one of the 10 currently available languages.
The Nokia Xpress internet platform uses the Bing Translate service to do all the work for you. Further, Nokia Xpress will also offer downloading videos and other content directly to your Microsoft SkyDrive account without having to first download to your device. Those interested can download the application and use it to experience it. Those in doubts, can have a look at the video below.
