Nokia Reading, one of the exclusive and much needed e-book reader application is now rolling out globally. Nokia Reading will roll out on a country-by-country basis from this week on the Nokia Lumia 900, 800, 710, and 610. The initial launch countries are France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Spain and the UK. Others will follow over the rest of the year. If you’re in one of the launch countries, look out for Nokia Reading in the Nokia Collection section of the Marketplace
It is feature rich and brings great reading experience to you. Check some main features and demo video below.
- Nokia Reading boasts a wide range of local titles, as well as a large collection of English titles popular across the world, such as The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo; One Day; and The Adventures Of Sherlock Holmes, with more being added all the time.While eBooks are becoming a common sight in countries like the US and the UK, they are still in their infancy – or basically unavailable – in many parts of the world. And this is where the strength of Nokia Reading lies: in local language e-reading content.
- There are also thousands of international classics available for free. To make it easy to choose what to read, books are organised into lists such as Top eBooks and New Releases and categorized into genres. If you already know what you want, full predictive search makes it easy to find what you want by title or author.
- On a Lumia, the ClearBlack Display helps reduce reflections on the screen, and Microsoft’s ClearType technology renders fonts cleanly, without jagged curves.
- The type is resizable, too, so it can be as big as your eyesight requires.
- There’s also the handy night mode, too, which means you won’t be blinded by a bright white screen in the middle of the night. This mode turns the white pages black and the black words white, perfect for when looking for something to help you into slumber. Using a black background is also kinder to your battery if you have a long journey ahead.
- Further additions to Nokia Reading are already in the pipeline, and will appear as free updates through Marketplace. These include provision for audio books and, perhaps of most interest, News Stream. News Stream will offer a virtual news magazine, making subscribing to and enjoying local and international RSS feeds simpler and more beautiful than ever before.
