skydriveA few of our readers have been commenting that their Nokia N8s have been getting another update called “Upload to SkyDrive”

My Nokia N8 got today update: SkyDrive. You can upload your addres book and/or your photos straight into your SkyDrive account. You cant chose which photo or contact you upload, it’s all or nothing.

Off the topic: I have got an update on my N8 called “Upload to SkyDrive”.

I checked back on our tips and one that got missed 9 days ago was reptile who said:

US Variant Nokia N8 (059C8T6) just got SkyDrive!

Another US user,  beelzebbub, 10 days before commented

My Nokia N8 in the USA has a new update “Upload to SkyDrive” but the description refers to a Lumia phone – anyone else get this?  Should we bother or is it just for Lumia phones?Thanks

I think Ali replied to him indicating it might have been an old update (though that’s for 808).

That’s actually quite an old update; but very useful. Check it out over here:

I had a look at some user tweets and apparently other belle devices and even S60V5 devices are getting this update.

    I’m seeing is a beta labs app for 5800, 5530, 5230, 5233.. –>

    on my n8 so far i have no update for that..

    • gajomau

      hum.. after all the update was here for my n8 ( p.code: 0599855) only through nokia suite was available :S

  • beelzebub

    I ended up d/l it – haven’t used it but it’s nice to have another colorful icon app to look at lol. I am glad that we are still getting updates for the relatively dead Symbian.

    The skydrive on the 808 is different from the n8 version, on the n8 version it doesnt have all this options, just image size ://

  • Hari

    For some reason, the US variant Nokia N8 still did NOT get Belle Refresh Update….Any idea, why is this??

    • JGrove303

      Which USA variant. Because all the NAM RM-596 devices got Belle Refresh.

      • reptile

        059C8T6 is one that didn’t get it.

    I installed this yesterday, this is great as I no longer have to hook up my N8 to my PC, it will all just go to skydrive when wifi is avaialable 🙂

    I accidentally uninstalled the Skydrive-Update from my 808.
    I cannot reinstall it by using the SoftwareUpdate or theNokiaSuite.
    Anyone has an idea how to get it back?
    NokiaSupport could not help me.

  • i got this update yesterday. now i have the useless options to upload all pictures and contacts to skydrive. i want the automatic upload of new pictures to skydrive back! the new one is useless if you use exchange active sync for contacts.

  • Gonzo

    I have switched back to the old version, i want the automatic upload of new pics via wlan.

    • how to rollback to old version?
