Internet Sharing, Flip-to-Silence and the Camera Extras pack that were recently released, the Nokia City Lens augmented reality app is now available for download in the Marketplace for all of the above except the Lumia 610, and also Nokia Counters will help you keep track of your mobile data usage.Apart from the
As for the upcoming goodies, Nokia will bring Cinemagraph and an updated Smart Group Shot plus "additional surprises" for current Lumia owners, that will help them snap and share images better. Further down the pipeline are the following features:
All these will be rolled out gradually in phases, and will eventually reach all Nokia Lumia 610, 710, 800 and 900 owners, who might have felt left out in the cold with Microsoft's decision to completely rewrite Windows Phone for the new WP8 handsets, to match the kernel with the one used for its Windows franchise.

Yeah Nokia doesn't forget their old customers but they now seem to have an ethics problem with their pureview fiasco they got themselves into. I really WANT Nokia to succeed but I have to say their pureview fiasco is definitely not helping at all. Nokia needs now more than ever to literally bend over backwards to fix what someone negligent in their brass did to them. I hope that Nokia gets out of this fast & clean because it would be a shame if these new Nokia's don't sell because of the negative press. These new Nokia WP8's have some real potential & I hope they really do well.

The pureview fiasco was a blunder... but in course of time I see general opinion of people shifting to the positive side. Yeah, that day people were furious, posted lethal comments but now I see more and more reassuring thoughts.

No galaxy r user got the update, samsung just ditched them.. I m not comparing wp8 and android, i m comparing nokia and others.. Nokia never ditches their customer even n8 users still get customer support, thats d reson i always stick 2 nokia,

Love my Focus S. A ton. It has been dependable, enjoyable, and Samsung has supported it decently. But this???? A whole level different. Nokia is doing everything it can and putting a cherry on top to encourage present owners and those on the fence that they are in this for the long haul and that their consumers are appreciated. Forget "camera-gate" at the announcement for the 920/820. I am willing to spot it as an honest screw up. Nokia is at the top of my list. I see them bringing apps (ESPN Radio, PayPal, ECT) to the entire ecosystem, top level exclusives to their devices, and support to make other manufacturers hide their faces in shame. So long as WP 8's features are everything we expect and put it in the same ballpark as Android, I am sold. Sorry Sammy and HTC.... You are down a peg on the Gator Meter.
