At CES, Nokia is showcasing a new app called Nokia City Lens on Nokia Lumia 900. The app which is currently in beta may come pre-installed in Nokia Lumia 900. This app was built by Nokia Location/Commerce team and Its basically an Augmented Reality app that helps you explore local points of interests. You can point your camera in the air towards a direction and browse through cluster of POIs displayed on the screen. When you make your device flat, the same POIs will be displayed as a list for easy browsing.

Pretty neat app. Hope Nokia releases it in the marketplace for other Lumia devices soon.
