While readying the release of its first mobile phone to run under the Symbian^3 operating system, the Nokia N8, Finnish handset vendor Nokia released a new flavor of its PC connectivity solution, Nokia Ovi Suite.
According to a recent post on Nokia's support forums, the new software solution comes into the wild with as Ovi Suite version 188.8.131.52, and brings forth a series of enhancements meant to improve the experience users receive from the application.
To be more precise, the release notes of the new application include:
- The stability of Nokia Ovi Suite has been improved
- Map download is more reliable than before
- Video playback has been improved
- Nokia Ovi Suite now supports syncing contacts with Mozilla Thunderbird 3.1
- Several improvements for Microsoft Outlook 2010 support
- Operator settings lists has been updated to latest (useful, if you use your phone as modem)
According to the guys from the Nokia Ovi Suite team, the new release should provide users with some fixes for commonly met issues with the connectivity solution.
It's a common fact that Nokia has been trying to push the Nokia Ovi Suite to its users as an alternative to the older software solutions that it released for them.
According to the company, the suite is meant to replace all other applications that Nokia phone owners were using to connect their handsets to a PC computer so as to have it synced, or to pre-load various apps and files on it.
The PC application can be installed on machines that run under Microsoft's Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 operating systems.
Those interested in getting the new Nokia Ovi Suite 184.108.40.206 should be able to do so from the app itself, in case they have it installed on their computers, through checking “Tools” -> “Software updates,” providing they did not receive a notification on the update until now.
As for those who might not have the solution already installed on their computers, they can download Nokia Ovi Suite 220.127.116.11 from Softpedia too, via this link.
