Exclusive Apps To Go With The Nokia Lumia Smartphones

The Windows Phone line-up from Nokia goes full blast in North America with Nokia Lumia 900 on the front line for AT&T, Nokia Lumia 710 for T-Mobile USA and Rogers Communications and the Nokia Lumia 800 for Telus. Aside from carrier association, the Nokia Lumia 800 will also be available from Microsoft Stores and available online in three vivid colors (cyan, magenta and matte black).

All this will be carrying exclusive apps which will bring unique experiences for Nokia Lumia users. Within the key categories, new app experiences include:

NEWS: CNN for Windows Phone application

The CNN App for Windows Phones will provide the latest news and video from CNN's reporting around the globe. Offering a robust user experience, the CNN App takes full advantage of Windows Phone 7 features to offer a vivid, panoramic interface, the ability to pin sections of the app to a home screen, Live Tile for real-time news updates, and direct access to iReport, CNN's participatory news community. For the first time on an app, users will have the ability to submit an iReport while simultaneously capturing the event. Launching globally for free in the next month, the CNN App will be exclusive to Nokia users for 90 days and then available on all Windows Phone devices as they come to market.

MULTI-CULTURAL: Univision for Windows Phone application

Univision offers a wide range of unparalleled content that resonates with Hispanics, the fastest growing segment in the US. The Univision app provides coverage from news and entertainment to sports and soccer, as well as cooking and local content for several U.S. markets including New York, Miami and San Francisco. Users have access to real-time information, clips of Univision shows and special events, and news and weather based on their location. The app will be exclusive to Nokia consumers in the U.S. and Puerto Rico for 18 months on Windows Phone devices.

SPORTS: ESPN Sports Hub Windows Phone application

From the worldwide leader in sports, the ESPN Sports Hub app brings Nokia Lumia users a truly unique smartphone sports experience. With great localized content wherever you are in the world, the user experience enables sports fans to fully customize the app and enjoy news, scores, video and analysis via a single screen which can be navigated with the swipe of a finger. Whether it's Football or Futball, NFL or Netball, this exclusive delivers the very best sports app experience.

ESPN, Inc., The Worldwide Leader in Sports, is the leading multinational, multimedia sports entertainment company featuring the broadest portfolio of multimedia sports assets with over 50 business entities.

KIDS& FAMILY: Sesame Workshop rich reading titles

Utilizing Nokia's interactive rich reading eBook experience, Sesame Workshop designed their apps based on extensive research, adapting these Sesame Street book titles to help an adult teach her child to become the storyteller while the adult becomes the listener, the questioner, and the audience for the child. Building on a three-year collaboration between Nokia, Sesame Workshop, and the Joan Ganz Cooney Center, the exclusive apps include both a free book, 100th Day of School, and three additional titles: Big Block Party, Color Carnival and Abby in Wonderland. Each title incorporates familiar Sesame Street characters including Elmo and Grover. These titles are exclusive to Nokia consumers globally for a minimum of six months.

The rest of the world still awaits for the coming of the Lumia's. Hope it will be very soon here in the Philippines.
