Over the course of the past several months, Microsoft has been slowly and quietly renaming the Nokia apps to the Lumia Apps.  This has all ben a part of the absorbing of Nokia as a company into Microsoft.  Last week during the Lumia 830 announcement at IFA, this became even clearer as every app mentioned by name was Lumia, like the Lumia Selfie app.  Now more and more of what were the Nokia apps are under the Lumia name.

On the Nokia YouTube channel, the company has posted two new Lumia 830 videos for your viewing enjoyment.  The two videos, both found after the break, highlight the features, style and design of the 830 which was announced today in Berlin.

Having watched both videos a couple of times, I have to say I’m quite excited about this new Lumia.

Jump past the break to see the two videos.

Microsoft has announced that the next version of the Nokia Lumia firmware, Lumia Denim, will start shipping with the new Lumia 830, 730 and 735 immediately with the rest of us seeing it by the end of this year.  It is an impressive statement given that many of us are still just now getting Lumia Cyan on our devices.

This morning at IFA in Berlin, Microsoft has been busy.  They have announced several new things including the all new Lumia 830 Windows Phone.  A slim 5″ display device, the Lumia 830 comes packed with features including an impressive 10MP PureView camera and wireless charging.  The 830 is the successor to the 820 and is expected to ship later this month for around €330 or $430.  While the 820 was never a world beater, Microsoft certainly is aiming the 830 to be with a good mix of advanced features without the massive high end price tag.

So just in case you missed it somewhere down the line, I left Windows Phone about 3 years ago out of frustration and started another site, AlliOSNews.  Now I like iOS but it isn’t magical.  I like the iPhone 5s as well but again, it isn’t magical.  To me, the magic was in Windows Phone.  But there was a glaring hole in the platform and that would be the app store.  When I left a few years ago there were less than 25,000 apps in the app store.  That was at a time when Apple was pushing some 300,000.  Yeah, it puts it into perspective that the Windows Phone Store has just now hit the 300K marker.

As I wrote in my first post here a couple of weeks ago, there were two main reasons I came back to the Windows Phone community (besides missing all you peeps of course!).  One was the improvements that Microsoft had made in Windows Phone 8.0 and 8.1 and the second was the Windows Phone Store was finally getting the attention it need from big developers.
