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.

Tero Ojanpera, Exec VP, Entertainment and Communities, Nokia, spent 45 minutes talking about developing for the era of Social Location.

He basically tells the developers how Nokia is opening up the platform so that apps can be built and distributed in order for users to discover. They are also opening up the OVI platform’s API and that will allow 3rd party developers to utilise it and easily plug into the OVI Share network.

Soon users will have the chance to upload photos, videos and other media to social networks like flickr, facebook, OVI etc and this can be done at the same time instead of uploading them to the networks one after another.

Nokia N97 SDk was also released so developers can build apps, take over the front screen and inform users on their latest updates and ‘new things’. The front screen is live and dynamic. Users do not need to open apps to find out details of things they constantly want to know about.

Here’s a video of this talk.

Nokia beta labs recently published the new Share Online app on their website as sneak preview of what the final product will be like.

With this application you can share your pictures and videos on Ovi directly from your phone. You can also keep track of the latest comments and pictures sent by your friends. Share Online also works with several other image sharing services like Flickr and Vox.

Left: Transfers and comments alert can be seen from the active standby screen.
Right: Composing an upload.

Here are some of the new things that you will notice in Share Online 4.0 beta:

  • Improved upload/download experience. You don’t need to wait for your photos to be uploaded before uploading the next one. You can refresh your feeds, add comments, or even exit the application while the uploading is still in progress.
  • Outbox. You can see a list of pending uploads, as well as review, cancel or retry specific uploads. You can also use the Outbox to keep track of which photos and videos you have already uploaded.
  • Economic sharing. If you don’t have an affordable data plan, you can disable the use of cellular data in the Share Online settings, and queue your photos and videos to be uploaded as soon as a free WLAN connection is available. In addition, there are data counters available, in case you want to keep track of your cellular data usage.
  • Active standby indicators. Your outbox info is visible and accessible in your active standby screen. If you prefer, you can also remove these indicators.

Right: After uploading our media, we can view them in this menu that links to our OVI gallery online.

Currently this version of Share Online is only available for N96, 6220 Classic, 6210 Navigator and 5320 XpressMusic.
