Nokia releases Xpress for Lumia browser, compresses data by up to 90 percent

Nokia has released the beta version of a new browser called Xpress for Lumia that is based on the same principle as the browser on their Asha phones, which itself was based on the Opera Mini.

The Nokia Xpress for Lumia browser is designed exclusively for Nokia Lumia phones and claims to compress data by up to 90 percent, saving your data, time and money.

Some of the other important features of this browser include:

  • Detailed report on the amount of data that you consumed on the browser. Can be saved as a live tile for quick view.
  • Save sites with RSS feeds in the browser and then view the articles in a magazine style layout.
  • Save pages for offline viewing
  • Save a video on SkyDrive and watch it later
  • Tap on a word on a page and do a quick search on Wikipedia, Bing and YouTube
  • Translate a page to one of the 10 language options available

The browser is currently available for download only from Nokia Beta Labs.
