Nokia Big Screen now available free at OVI Store

The OVI Store has a new addition in the apps/entertainment category — the Nokia Big Screen. This application, which has been made available for download at no cost since March 11, is a new kind of media player that you can install on Nokia N8 and E7.

Nokia Big Screen
What does this app do?

Nokia Big Screen turns your mobile device into a media center for photos, videos and music when connected to HDTV with HDMI.

With Nokia Big Screen, you can:
  • Show your photos and videos in high definition on your TV screen
  • Listen to music from your phone on your home audio system
  • View song lyrics in karaoke style and watch videos with subtitles
  • Play music on the background while you browse your photos
  • Enjoy a photo slideshow with music of your choice (change the direction with left/right arrow keys)
  • Screen saver activates after a minute's idle time to protect your TV
  • Use your phone as an entertainment hub you can take everywhere with you
Nokia says that once you've installed the app on your phone, just connect the phone to your TV with an HDMI cable and the application opens automatically.

Use the application from the phone touch display or by wirelessly connecting a Bluetooth keyboard or Wii Remote to your phone.

I've downloaded and installed it on my N8. Total file size is 624KB so it's pretty small. I'm going to give my own review once I already get to actually use it.
