Nokia Collection being added to the Windows Phone Marketplace

WP Central

For some the Nokia Collection area of the Marketplace has been featuring all of the OEM apps available for Windows Phone (much like HTC, Samsung, LG, etc. have on their handsets), but for others this collection of apps has been missing since the Lumia handsets have been released. 

We've had the Nokia Collection missing from our European handsets, but our U.S. colleagues have had access to the collection. Our Jay Bennett has just noticed the additional menu entry just above 'applications' (see above screenshots) being made available, but I still can't see anything on the Lumia 710 (unlocked) or 800 (unlocked and carrier locked). Though the Nokia apps can be found via Marketplace search, should a reinstallation be required.

Let us know if you're able to access the Nokia Collection on your Nokia Windows Phone in the comments.

Neither do I see it on my Samsung over in Sweden. However on my Nokia Lumia 800 I see the Nokia Collection. However, the things that come with Samsung is not available. Why not be totally open?

Hi there
My Nokia Lumia 800 is locked to orange network. I took it to few different shops to  get it unlocked.... but all of them saying..they have not yet got any unlocking sofware out in the market for my phone..!!! Dono what to do...Do u kno any places where they do it, pls??
Thanks

Nokia collection available on my unlocked Lumia 800 in SG. The Nokia Maps available in the collection is no way close to what's available on my N9 or even the earlier versions. Guess Nokia would be working on this and released a stable version before someone ported it :P Nokia Music is good though, along with a few others!

I see it in the Canadian marketplace but I have my region set to United States for Bing Vision and Local Scout but the thing is I don't see the ESPN app etc

Thanks to the magic of xda you can also get it on your unlocked phone. Running Nokia drive and their ESPN app on my focus and loving it.

Nokia Drive is only for Nokia phones. Getting a stolen copy from xda for use on a non-Nokia device is receiving stolen goods. I'm not gonna rat this guy out or anything, but I think we should try to be civilized and honest. The world would be better if we were.

Nokia Drive doesn't work on non Nokia devices, such as my HTC Titan.. Not that I have tried installing it or anything *cough*

Works fine on my focus, granted it's a nodded version. Really like nokias ESPN app, alot better than regular ESPN app

I'm talking about the official CNN app. It is sopposed to be a timed exclusive Nokia app. Just wondering if it is already available.

On my Lumia 800 in India, it shows as 'Apps From Nokia' instead of 'Nokia Collection' featuring following apps:
Nokia Mpas
Nokia Drive
Contacts Transfer
Network Setup
WRC Live
TuneIn Radio
App highlights

Yup, same here. Phone sourced from Phones4U. Thought we would never get it due to the damn Orange zone.

Nokia Collection has been there since day one on my T-Mobile Germany Lumia 800. Same for all other colleagues, currently ~100 as the Lumia being our new company phone since Dec 2011.
