Imagine taking photos of a scenery… and the uploading it to the Internet and merge it with photos taken by others which were taken at the same location… creating a 3D imagery of a certain scene. Cool?

Imagine no more cos it’s now a reality.

Nokia betalabs has just launched the beta version of Nokia Image Space that does just as mentioned above. Haha.

You simply link your Flickr account to Image Space. You can then start browsing and sharing photos in Image Space and this way building a view to your part of the world. Your account, the privacy settings and contact lists are handled in Flickr. You see your Flickr contacts and those photos you have access to. Moreover, the comments, tags and photo descriptions can be viewed and edited in Image Space.

When there are enough photos of a given area which have been made publicly available, Image Space generates a 3D presentation from them. This feature will be ramped up in phases during the next two months, so please be patient. You can see some examples now at Helsinki and Tampere.

Currently Nokia Image Space app is compatible with N97 mini, Nokia 6210 Navigator, Nokia 6710 Navigator, Nokia 6720 Classic. Should work in S60 3.2 and 5.0 devices with inbuilt compass.

We’ve all heard of it… waited for it.. and now it’s finally live! Ovi Store… is the one stop shop for Nokia users to download apps, ringtones, videos, games and many other interesting contents for the mobile.

OVI Store is for all Nokia users.. be it an S60 or S40 device

You can visit the store using your PC at but it is recommended if you view it using your phone browser as you can directly download apps without the need to send the SMS link to your phone(if you are on PC).

Be sure to get yourself an OVI username (if you still havent got one).. cos you need it to sign in to Ovi Store to download contents to your own phone or send to your friends.

Here are some screenshots I took when I was surfing Ovi Store on my 5800. Upon arriving on the site, you will be prompted to download and install the Ovi Store app for better and smarter experience. So I did. As you can see on the 2nd screenshot, I was signing in to my OVI account. You can do that by scrolling down to the bottom of the page in the app.

This is how the app looks like on the 5800. Touchscreen experience is always the best.. ahahhaah (cant wait for the BETTER experience on the N97.. lol).. ya so you can surf around to look for the contents that you like. The green tabs on top categorises the apps to games, apps, recommended, my stuff, personalisation and audio & video. Once you click on an app that you are interested in, it will switch to the screenshot on the left.. more info about the content and buttons to download and send to friend. If it’s a paid app then you will see the option to buy.

Do check out the all new OVI store now!
