ESPOO, Finland – Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 users have began receiving the Lumia Black update, which began rolling out earlier this month.
The update offers new features, new apps and app updates from Nokia and Microsoft that improve the user experience on the Lumia series.

Redefining new standards of sharing, Nokia Beamer provides the functionality of sharing almost anything from photos, documents, presentations and even the QR code of an HTML-5 enabled screen.
Earlier just available on Lumia 1520 andLumia 2520, Nokia now extends this Storyteller to other Lumia smartphones as well. This app arranges every photo by date and place, making it easier to tell stories behind one’s pictures.
Nokia Camera combines the Nokia Pro Camera and Smart Camera and enriches users’ photography experience even further. The app is now available on the entire Windows Phone 8 Lumia range. This update brings RAW DNG support to the Nokia Lumia 1020, that was earlier just available on the Nokia Lumia 1520.
