|In order to make their devices more popular and make it even easier to share images, Nokia has signed up a partnership with Flickr which shall allow Nokia users (of the latest handsets - Nokia N93, Nokia N73 and the Nokia N72) to directly upload pictures taken onto Flickr. Flickr is one of the largest photo sharing communities on the world wide web. Once uploaded to Flickr, photos can also be sent to blogs, as well as edited, organized, tagged, shared and more. |
| "The role of photography in people's lives has begun a radical shift in the last five years. As increasing mobility creates new possibilities for communication, people stay in touch, share and discover the world through each other's eyes," said Stewart Butterfield, Flickr co-founder and general manager. "Nokia and Flickr are making it easy for consumers to connect and share their photos and life experiences without being tied to a PC." |
You can upload your full size photos to Flickr directly from the camera or image Gallery application on your Nokia Nseries device. Another supported feature is the ability to add comments to the photos that are uploaded from the Nokia Nseries device. Setting up the online sharing function is easy once you have registered with Flickr (www.flickr.com) and received the login information for the device. This co-operation is available to consumers in select markets in the initial roll out.
It makes sense for Nokia to concentrate on its camera features since last year Nokia sold more than 100 million camera phones, making it the world's largest manufacturer of digital cameras.
