Existing Nokia Lumia phones to get Windows Phone 8-like UI, new apps and features

Despite launching new phones a week ago, Nokia has no plans to abandon its existing customer base. In fact, the Finnish company will be releasing additional software updates for all of its Windows Phone devices, including Lumia 610, Lumia 710, Lumia 800 and Lumia 900. While they won’t get the latest version of Microsoft’s mobile platform, they will receive cool stuff, including new Start screen that looks like the one Windows Phone 8 has, ringtone maker app, ability to share contacts over Bluetooth (in addition to SMS and email) and the ability to do the same with files (Bluetooth file transfer). Moreover, at its blog post, Nokia also talks about Cinemagraph and updates to Smart Group Shot with some additional surprises to make photo shooting and sharing as easy as possible.

We like how it sounds and even more love the fact that those of you with current Lumia models won’t be left behind. Way to go Nokia. ;)
