There are many that view Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK) (BIT:NOK1V) (HEL:NOK1V) as a dinosaur in the smartphone industry. From there, the wiser view Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) as a similar dinosaur from a different age. The two have been paired together through an almost unholy alliance in the view that two wrongs might someday make a right. While many view this as unlikely, you need only look to the Lumia 1020, to see that Nokia can still make a phone shine. In the case of the 1020, the camera shines with a camera that puts most digital cameras to shame, never mind all camera phones.
Nokia releasing Storyteller
To couple with Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK) (BIT:NOK1V) (HEL:NOK1V)’s excellent camera phone, rumors are surfacing that Nokia will release an app called “Storyteller” at the Nokia World event. Nokia World will take place three weeks from today in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
@evleaks has been a reliable leaker of information revolving around Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK) (BIT:NOK1V) (HEL:NOK1V) and its products. This weeks saw @evleaks leak an image that shows an app called “Storyteller.” If the image and the name are anything to go by, the app seems to allow the user to organize their photos around events and themes creating a story unique to each user.
One-touch option to share your story
Of course, it’s quite difficult to get into too much detail; unlike the camera on the Lumia 1020, based solely on a single picture. That said, there is a “shared” link in the image that seems to suggest that you will have a one-touch option to share your story with other people. There is also a Timeline link that, one would think, would allow you to search through your photos chronologically. Lastly, there is a Places link that one can only assume will sort your pictures based on where they were taken.
The tweet also mentions “Sirius” and “Bandit,” which many believe to be the upcoming tablet and phablet (phone with a 6-inch display), suggesting that Storyteller will be featured on both devices when they are released. Even before its acquisition by Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK) (BIT:NOK1V) (HEL:NOK1V) was the largest maker of Windows-based phones. It’s probably a fair guess that Storyteller will be available for both Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8.
