For the past couple of weeks, my AT&T SIM has been living in my Palm Treo Pro (check out my full review) and I still really like the device, but wanted to jump back to S60 for a while. I now have my SIM in my Nokia E71 and discovered in my email archives that the Nokia Email service (check out my review) has gone from Beta 2 to Beta 3. They have been taking all the feedback we provided and there are some major updates and improvements in Beta 3.
The main differences between Beta 2 and Beta 3 are:
- Nokia Email Service now supports multiple email addresses (up to 6)
- Emails deleted on the device stay deleted – POP delete reconciliation, full IMAP fidelity
- Nokia Email Service now runs on more devices with seven more added
- Localization in multiple languages
I loaded it up on my E71 and am enjoying these added features. I still want to see more support for IMAP folder management with my Gmail account in a future update, but it is definitely getting better.
In other Nokia news, I read on the Symbian Guru site that Nokia Beta Labs added Nokia Map Loader support for the Mac users with S60 devices. I was quite excited to see this and plan to install it soon. You can now sideload maps directly to your device. I do this when I take overseas trips because I don't always have a data connection, yet with the maps preloaded on the device I can still use the GPS receiver and my S60 device to get around town.
Did you also know they have Nokia Multimedia Transfer for the Mac too. Hopefully someday we will see a full Mac Suite for S60 devices and if they keep adding these tools one by one it just may come to that.
