Nokia Beta Labs has just gone through what must be the 2nd UI overhaul in the past year or so and I must say, these guys have really been on the ball lately. In addition to the initial wow factor, there also seems to be a growing degree of consistency between Nokia’s websites with Nokia Ideas and Forum Nokia having a largely similar look and feel.
In addition to this new look, they’ve also managed to push out a pretty nifty plug-in for most modern web browsers that allows you to push web-pages and images to your web-enabled Symbian device without so much as typing a letter. Nokia Drop is a demonstration of the push notification capability built into the Qt Mobility API’s and what can be done with Symbian.
While it won’t ever fully replace your cloud storage (Dropbox for example) it’s utility is rather obvious. In fact, I’ve been using a similar application for Windows Phone 7 for a few weeks now. Of course with a Windows plug-in and/or a bit more work this could actually be used to push any and all files over the cloud to your devices. Definitely a promising prospect no?
Thanks to ZOMGItsCJ for the heads up.
