Nokia Flagship Lumia 830, Dual-SIM Lumia 730, and 4G Lumia 735

At IFA 2014, Nokia has unveiled the new Windows Phone 8.1 models including Lumia 830, Lumia 730 and Lumia 735 to the world. Featured with a 10-megapixel PureView camera and 8.5mm thickness, Nokia Lumia 830 is announced as an "affordable flagship" as well as the thinnest and lightest Lumia phone yet. And for Lumia 730 series of phones, the magnanimous focus is the ubiquitous "selfies" with a 5MP wide-angle front camera and a 6.7MP rear camera along with the unique Selfie app pre-installed on the devices. The difference between Nokia Lumia 730 and Lumia 735 is that the former is a dual-SIM variant and supports 3G, while the latter comes with 4G LTE support. For people who like to take selfies, the Lumia 730 and 735 would be nice choices. According to the official announcement, all these three new Lumia models will be on sale in September 2014.

Transfer Media Files from iTunes to Nokia Lumia 730/735/830

So you must be too eager to wait for those camera phones, right? But if you are a movie lover who has tons of movies, TV shows and other media files purchased from iTunes and would like to watch those iTunes movies on Nokia Lumia 730, Lumia 735 or Lumia 830, you'd better take a look at the following story before rush to buy the phone.

"I got a new Nokia Lumia 1020 recently. But I can't sync iTunes to Lumia 1020 normally. The movies, TV shows and other media files purchased from iTunes just don't show up in the Lumia 1020 movie list. Does this have to do with DRM? Or am I doing something wrong? How could I transfer media files, especially the movies from iTunes to Lumia with ease?"

As you can see, Lumia phones don't support media files like iTunes movies for playback on the devices. So to Lumia 730, Lumia 735 or Lumia 830. That's because iTunes movies and TV series are protected by DRM and saved in M4V format which is incompatible with Nokia Lumia phones and any other non-Apple devices. But the good news is that you still have chance to sync iTunes movies to Nokia Lumia by using some 3rd-party apps to remove the DRM protection from iTunes movies and convert the DRM M4V files to Nokia Lumia supported video format, like MP4.
