One of the services announced at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last week was Nokia Reading – a great way to keep yourself entertained on a flight, on the subway, or when you have a little time to spare – and I’d like to take five minutes of your Nokia Connects day to tell you more.
Available on the Nokia Lumia phones in six markets at launch (UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Russia – with more to come), Nokia Reading will allow users to download all their favourite books for perusal at their leisure. But it’s so much more than that. From watching the video that was shared on Nokia Conversations the other day, the feature I’ll be glued to is the News Stream. Sounds pretty cool…have a watch and see what you think:
Over at The Mobile Indian, there’s more on Nokia Reading (in amongst other great news about Nokia Life and Nokia Drive) from Samir Makwana. He mentions that as well as printed books (well, printed on your Lumia’s screen) audiobooks will also be available for those times when you just want to sit back and let someone read to you. In a nice touch, Samir says that reading in Nokia Pure font would be ‘one soothing experience’. I agree.
What will be the first book you download on Nokia Reading? Will you use the written word or audio books more? As ever, we love to hear what you have to say, so feel free to let us know @Nokia_Connects, or just drop your thoughts into the comment box below.
