There’s also a new file-sharing service called “Nokia SLAM” that works similarly to Bump, letting you transfer media between bluetoothe-enabled devices without the need to manually pair. And even more exciting, is the fact that it has a new voice-guided camera for portrait shots. And like most Asha phones, you get access to 40 free EA games on the Nokia Store, along with Twitter, Facebook and eBuddy pre-installed.
