A beta version of Nokia's new photography application, called Nokia Image Space, has been made available from Nokia Beta Labs.
The app is compatible with all Nokia smartphones running the Symbian S60 platform and it offers users some brand new functions previously unseen on Nokia mobiles.
The least revolutionary of its capabilities is the inclusion of Flikr compatibility, allowing users to upload pictures from their mobile to their online Flikr account to share with friends. However, Nokia Image Space is not just about basic social networking.
The main unique feature here is a kind of social networking / geotagging hybrid service. Essentially when you take a picture using your Nokia mobile phone it will be imprinted with information about your location and when you upload it to Flikr the service will use the meta data to link to pictures taken by other Nokia users who were in the same place as you.
On top of this, the service will also be able to compile full 3D views from user images that have been uploaded if the volume of pictures available is significant enough.
Owners of the Nokia N97, 6270 Classic and 5800 will be able to download and enjoy the app in its current test state, but a finalised release should be along shortly.
