Nokia closes Scalado deal, teases new camera technology
Ealier, in June, Nokia announced it will acquire imaging gurus from Scalado and now it has closed the deal and teased some of the upcoming technology. First, though, we should note that Scalado still has a deal with RIM and this deal remains good, so we’ll see that incredible best image technology arrive in BlackBerry 10.

As to Nokia, the company is keeping what’s coming in the imaging department a secret. Nokia’s vice president of software management, Samuli Hanninen, though, did say that “imaging is about to go through another major revolution.”

The pictures we take on Nokia Lumia devices will allegedly come with much more background information. “One example is the way phones can enrich photos with contextual data. It can know the who, what, where and when behind every picture and use that intelligently,” Hanninen explained.

Now, what’s really interesting is that the upcoming technology will enable changing the composition, so that different parts of the image are in focus, much like that Lytro camera magic we’ve already heard about.
