Nokia Photo Browser available for 5800 and N97 on Beta Labs site

I will be heading out to catch my flight to CTIA in Vegas in a few hours and ran across this story on the Nokia Conversations site that discusses the release of the new Nokia Photo Browser on the Nokia Beta Labs site. I have been using PhotoFlow for checking out photos on my Nokia 5800 and just downloaded and installed this new photo utility to try out.

As I understand from the Beta Labs site the Nokia Photo Browser supports the 5800 and N97 S60 5th Edition with:

  • Strokes, drags, and taps should work as you’d expect
  • In the single image view:
    • Long press to start the magnifier
    • Double-tap will start the regular zoom
    • Double-tap on a face will start the face browsing
    • In the face browsing mode, a stroke will travel between faces

There is a version for S60 3rd Edition under development too. Check out the video below of Nokia Photo Browser in action.

BTW, I have my 5800 loaded up with podcasts, some music, videos (including one from Amazon Unbox that I bought using the $50 credit coupon in the 5800 box), and lots of apps. I plan to Qik some things from the show so you can check out videos I take here on my Qik site if you like.

The Nokia Photo Browser looks very similar to the Cooliris plugin for Firefox.

I love Cooliris, especially for browsing Facebook photos and Google Image searches, so it’ll be nice to see this kind of interface on a phone.

@ Tim – I thought the same thing. Poor Cooliris ideas getting snatched. Love it being on a phone but sucks for Cooliris.
