Nokia has released a beta version of a new web browser called Xpress for Lumia that is based on the same principle as the browser (for the Asha line with the outing of the 308 and 309 last week), which itself was based on the Opera Mini.
Announced today via the company’s Beta Labs site, the Nokia Xpress for Lumia browser is designed exclusively for Nokia Lumia phones and claims to compress data by up to 90% , saving your data, time and money. The Nokia Xpress for Lumia, help users keep tabs on their consumption habits and even reformats favorited sites into a magazine-like layout. The Windows Phone app also enables users to make “smart searches” for content across Bing and YouTube with a simple tap of a selected term, as well as translate the contents of a foreign language page easily from the settings menu. The browser is currently available for download only from Nokia Beta Labs.
And here’s the video showing the new Xpress for Lumia :
