Nokia Lumia 800 and 710 get Camera Extras, more apps

The Nokia Lumia 900 and Lumia 610 already received some of the updates that Nokia promised (in the US and China at least) at the WP summit and now it's time for the older duo - the Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 - to get their own. There's a little something for the 900 and 610 too.

To be clear, the new apps are available in the US and China for now. They will be released worldwide in July.

Camera Extras include four features - Smart Group Shot (which uses Scalado's technology), Action Shot (which does burst shot), Self timer and Panorama (these two are self-explanatory).

Check out this video for more details on Camera Extras.

The Nokia Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 are getting two other features - Internet sharing (Wi-Fi tethering) and flip-to-silence (muting alarms and ringers by flipping the phone over).

The 900 and 610 already have these features, but there's something new for them as well. It's called contact share, it's going to be available to all Lumia smartphones, and it lets you send and receive Business cards over SMS.

The Play To app, which enables DLNA on all Lumias, is already available for download.

To install the new apps, your Lumia 800 or Lumia 710 will have to be updated to Windows Phone 7.5 (are there even any people who havenít updated yet?).

As I know, it still isn't available in the marketplace (app from Nokia's tab), Don't worry, it will soon be available. Atleast, that's what I've been told. hahah
