Rocking Out With My Nokia Lumia 822

Since activating my Nokia Lumia 822 a couple of months ago, I have been pleasantly surprised by a number of the phone’s features. First, there is the overall ease of use of the Windows Phone software. Everything is logical and simple to learn. Then there is Nokia Drive+, which just might be the best mobile mapping and turn-by-turn navigation system on the market today. And, of course, there is the augmented reality app City Lens, which gives you a whole new perspective on your local neighborhood. But perhaps nothing has been as big a surprise as Nokia Music.

One of the problems with my previous phones was that my music choices were always scattered across various built-in features and third-party apps. My own music collection would be in one place, I would have to go to Google Music or Amazon for song purchases, and I would have to power up Pandora or Spotify if I wanted to get creative with a little mood music. Now, everything is in once convenient place courtesy of Nokia Music.

To transfer my own music collection, I just hooked up the Lumia 822 to my PC, downloaded the Windows Phone app for desktop, and then selected all the songs that I wanted on my phone. Copying 120 songs took around 2 minutes. You can transfer straight from iTunes and, unlike other music transfer apps, everything comes over intact, including playlists and album artwork.

But it’s the music streaming service that really sets Nokia Music apart. The Mix Radio section features dozens of great mixes – everything from chart toppers to ‘best of’ collections to every genre that you can think of. Headed to the gym? There are 7 different workout mixes to choose from, including a Zumba mix, high energy, aerobic, and even yoga. Want to sample some of the top music styles from around the US? Mix Radio will take you on a tour of Nashville, Atlanta, L.A., New York and more.

You can ask Nokia Music to create your own Pandora-style mix based on a favorite artist, and you can even take your mixes offline, so you can listen to them on an airplane or where there’s no network or Wi-Fi. You can share tracks and mixes with friends or pin them to your home screen for even easier access. And you always have the option to buy a song, or you can visit the store with over 17 million songs to choose from.

So how much does this amazing music service cost? Nothing. That’s right – it’s completely free. No subscriptions, no pay-as-you-go fees, and no annoying in-mix ads or messages. The Nokia Lumia is a great phone – and it’s also a great portable music player!

As you may have guessed, it is made of titanium and some stainless steel¡ªthe case is titanium and the rolex replica sale is stainless steel.

Synergy means cooperative action. This replica watches uk combines the best of the old and the new to deliver something uniquely modern. All of the classic elements are there. It has the sleek and stylish dial of the replica watches uk, the concave dot at the 12 o¡¯clock hour, and the Swiss quartz movement. But the Sapphire Synergy has something few breitling replica sale offer, a rubber wristband. Why rubber? Well, it¡¯s not a sport rolex replica sale, so using it outdoors is out of the question. But the informal band gives it a more casual look and feel, which can be quite appealing to the modern male.
