Nokia Collection for Windows Phone

When Nokia entered the Windows Phone market, one of their strategies to attract customers was to provide exclusive apps and games for their Lumia Windows Phones.  While other Windows Phone manufacturers offer similar collections of apps, the Nokia Collection is by far the largest offering.

From Xbox Live game titles to camera apps to utilities to news apps, the Nokia Collection adds to the attraction the Lumia Windows Phones have.

As of December 2012, Nokia has over 50 exclusive apps and games available to those with Lumia phones.

New Car app from Nokia helps you out while driving

Nokia bundled an app with its Lumia hardware which would kick into action when the smartphone was NFC paired with the CR-200 wireless charging car unit (see our review). Unfortunately, those who didn't own the car charger by Nokia, but still wanted to enjoy the enhanced driving experienced, were left in the dark. That is until today. Nokia has released a new Car app for Lumia Windows Phones, which works without the optional accessory.

Although the main news at Mobile World Congress from Nokia will center on Nokia X, we’re sure the Lumia makers will have some new Windows Phone apps and goodies on hand.

Indeed, Nokia via their Vine channel, have posted a short movie showing a woman taking "selfies" with her Lumia 1020. While some have jumped on this as a new device announcement – it’s not – we’re confident that this is for an Imagin8 app, used for adding digital effects in real time. Think of Kinect, but for your phone.
