Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) (BIT:NOK1V) (HEL:NOK1V) has finally created a major connection between Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) and Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), in spite of the two companies’ inability to resolve their relationship. Nokia has launched a YouTube upload app for Windows Phone 8.
Nokia releases details about its YouTube app
Just as the name implies, Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK) (BIT:NOK1V) (HEL:NOK1V)’s new app is designed to make it easy to upload videos shot with its amazing camera right into YouTube. Users of the app can either choose the file on their phone that they want to upload or use Nokia’s Video Trimmer app.
At this point the app looks to be only available for the Lumia 1020, although The Verge’s Vlad Savov reports that the app’s description and its support of WVGA display makes it appear as though Nokia will roll it out to other Windows Phone 8 devices in the future.
What else does Nokia have in the works?
Meanwhile Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK) (BIT:NOK1V) (HEL:NOK1V) continues to work on expanding its product line. The Verge’s Aaron Souppouris published what are supposed to be leaked photos of a large display glass which appears to be a big Nokia handset. The company has been rumored to be working on a very large Windows Phone 8 device for months, but this is one of the first physical indications that the rumors of a 6-inch Nokia handset may be correct.
The 6-inch device is said to be in testing right now and be geared toward Galaxy Note users, putting it in direct competition with the popular phablet. Reports that Windows Phone 8 would soon be able to support 1080p resolution through a future update were confirmed by an engineer who once worked with Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) and Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK) (BIT:NOK1V) (HEL:NOK1V). A resolution this high would certainly make it possible for larger phones to be made and would probably provide enough space for an extra column or two of Live Tiles.
The update is also expected to support quad-core processors, an important development that also supports a larger screen size.
