Nokia has more or less successfully positioned their smartphones to be devices that offer a fantastic camera experience along the way, and the PureView technology which is part of the mix happens to play a large role in perpetuating that viewpoint, too. After all, who can resist the large words “41 megapixels” emblazoned in advertisements for the Nokia Lumia 1020? It is more or less bound to attract plenty of attraction for sure! Well, Nokia has also come up with a highly advanced Camera app in order to take advantage of the advanced cameras in select Nokia Lumia handsets, but today marks a new milestone. Nokia has announced that as long as you own a Lumia device which runs on the Windows Phone 8 mobile operating system, you will be able to download a public beta version of the Nokia Camera app.
This means the Nokia Camera app will no longer be an exclusive app on a PureView-powered camera in a Lumia handset. This particular app will arrive with similar features as that of the existing Nokia Camera model, and in due time, do expect experimental new features to be thrown into the mix, while existing ones will be refined. And when ready, expect these to end up in the stable, non-Beta Camera app via the standard Store update process.
