Nokia Xpress browser for Lumia Windows Phones released, brings up to 90% web page compression
Nokia has just released a brand new data-savvy Xpress browser for its Lumia Windows Phone smartphones. The browser stands out with its data compression algorithms a la Opera Mini. Nokia Xpress comes with the promise to save you up to 90% of your data usage.

Apart from thinning down your monthly data bill, the new browser for Lumias should bring some battery life savings as well.

The Nokia Xpress browser is currently available for download only on Nokia Beta Labs. Here is a summary of its new features, as presented by Nokia and you can also check out a video demonstration of it right below.

  • Detailed report on the amount of data that you consumed on the browser. Can be saved as a live tile for quick view.
  • Save sites with RSS feeds in the browser and then view the articles in a magazine style layout.
  • Save pages for offline viewing
  • Save a video on SkyDrive and watch it later
  • Tap on a word on a page and do a quick search on Wikipedia, Bing and YouTube
  • Translate a page to one of the 10 language options available

When Victor reports good WP news he just puts the bare minimum facts... When there is the slightest chance to insert negativity he goes off on more lengthy and opinionated writings... It is all good. I am very excited for this browser for certain styles of browsing. Nokia proving again why it is the premier Windows Phone partner. #Switch

I agree about Elop, but disagree about Android.

Ya Nokia doesn't need android. WP8 looks awesome and I believe it's going to catch on. I'll be getting the lumia 920 if everything works out!
