Nokia has unveiled a new Ovi Suite 2.0 Beta version coming out of its Nokia Beta Labs a little more than two months ago
, and now the company has announced that the software solution is publicly available for the owners of Nokia handsets out there. Although it is still in beta, the application comes with a wide range of bug fixes, its developers say, as well as with a series of improvements, aimed at bringing enhancements to the user experience.
Those who already used the Nokia PC software will find here some of the functionalities of the older pieces of sotware, as well as a series of new features. According to the company, the new Nokia Ovi Suite 2.0
is meant to replace some of the existing Nokia solutions, including the Nokia PC Suite, Nokia Ovi Suite 1.x and Nokia Nseries PC Suite, while also including functionality coming from Nokia Photos, Nokia Software updater and Nokia Map loader.
The new Nokia Ovi Suite 2.0 Beta variant that was released into the wild on Thursday is reportedly the result of users' feedback, as the developing team analyzed error reports and worked on fixing the bugs that had been discovered. At the same time, the Nokia Beta Labs also notes that it will follow feedback from now on too, and that future releases of the software solution
will reflect this state of facts.
Here's what it has to say about the new release: - You asked support for application installation and that’s now working. Try double clicking your device application (.jar, .sisx) in PC and you should get your apps easily into device. This works great also, when downloading apps from web.
- In performance side, we’ve done lots of work related to memory consumption and trying to optimize load times. We hope to hear your feedback, please write your comments in this discussion thread.
- We hope to hear also your comments about photos and music sync, lots of error fixes have been made and also performance should [be] better compared to older Beta, you can comment that in this discussion thread.
In case you are not familiar with what the Nokia Ovi Suite 2.0 can offer, we should mention syncing between a Nokia device
and a personal computer, the possibility to move messages, contacts, photos, music and more between the computer and the Nokia device and share the photos on Ovi
, as well as support for Ovi services available through signing in with a Nokia Account. The application can be used on computers running under Windows Vista SP1 or newer and Windows XP SP2 or newer. The developing team says Windows 7 will also be supported when available commercially. Download the new Nokia Ovi Suite 2.0 Beta.
