GLOBALNokia Photo Browser is a new breed of image browsing app, that has just made its debut on the Nokia Beta Labs site. Designed for use with S60 5th edition touchscreen handsets, such as the 5800 XpressMusic and upcoming N97, the Nokia Photo Browser app comes toting a slick interface and smart collection of browsing features including ‘Face Browsing’ and a swish ‘MagGlass’ magnifying tool.

Nokia Conversations’ very own man at the helm, Charlie Schick, has been playing with Nokia Photo Browser on the 5800 XpressMusic, and even stepped in front of the lens to give a brief video demo of the app in action for the Beta Labs team. Click through to see the touchscreen interface up close, and examples of how the new ‘Face Browsing’ and ‘MagGlass’ feature actually perform. It’s pretty polished (the app, not Charlie – he’s got a matt finish), so don’t miss it.

Mika Hokkanen, Design Engineer on the Nokia Photo Browser team, has posted a piece on the Beta Labs blog introducing the app and mentions that they’re also working on a non touchscreen version for S60 3rd edition that will be released soon. But in the meantime, watch our video of the full touchscreen version here…
