Nokia Big screen is a beta app available on Nokia Beta Labs now available for all HDMI out supporting Symbian^3 devices like the Nokia N8 and the yet-to-be-released Nokia E7.
Before starting to blabber my thoughts, i will answer some FAQs
1. What does it do ?
A: After you install this app, whenever you plug the HDMI adapter to your phone, the app automatically starts. There are two faces for this app, one is on the HDTV and other is on the touch screen. The HDTV displays the media centre app in 720p while the touch screen turns into a directional remote. If you are not getting what i say, there is a clear video after the break to explain that.
2. Where can i get this app ?
A: You can get the app here and don’t forget, you should have a Nokia account to download this app.
3. What are the advantages ?
A: Your Symbian^3 device turns into a media centre, plays movies,music,slideshows in a fancy way. Movies display subtitles, Music shows lyrics if available, and of course the photo library can do a nice slideshow. And you can control everything wirelessly if you have a Wii controller or any other Bluetooth device that supports HID.So, the advantage you get is showing off your media to an audience while relaxing in your couch.
If you have any more questions don’t be shy to shoot it at me in the comments section 🙂
Head on after the break for my impressions and a video preview.
