Today, Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia made available for download a new flavor of its Nokia Suite application, aimed at providing users with the possibility to connect their Nokia handsets to a Windows-based PC.
The new Nokia Suite iteration is a beta release, available for download as version 3.8.10 and packing a variety of bug fixes and enhancements.
For those out of the loop, we should note that the app was designed to provide support for all Nokia handsets
that are running under Symbian, MeeGo or S40 software.
Owners of such devices will enjoy the following enhancements in the new software version:
- Numerous error corrections, especially in maps view, messaging view and in backup&restore.
- Fix for calendar sync issue with S40 phones, when phone and PC is located in timezone, where Daylight Saving Time (DST) is applied in winter (for example Australia).
- Several improvements for content migration to Microsoft SkyDrive. We have fixed several issues related to Microsoft SkyDrive migration, this improves overall reliability of migrating data from Symbian, Meego and S40 phones to Microsoft SkyDrive.
- Several fixes for various crashes.
Nokia Lumia owners can connect their smartphones with Windows PCs through software provided by Microsoft themselves, such as Microsoft Zune for Windows Phone 7.5 and Windows Phone 7.8, or the Windows Phone app for desktop for Windows Phone 8 smartphones
There is also a Windows Phone app specifically designed for Windows 8 and Windows RT machines, as well as a flavor for Mac users.
