Nokia PC Suite has been updated to 6.85 and with the updated has come quite an ovehaul and is available from the PC Suite page. The new UI looks great and here’s a rundown of some of the new featues it brings. I’ve been beta testing it for the past few weeks and must say I find this even better than the Nseries PC Suite!
The first addition is a nifty application that allows you to Drag & Drop any file from your PC to your Nokia phone. I tried this with pictures, mp3 and video and it worked great. This feature is fully customisable. There is an option to selct the directory to which each type of file would be copied, we can also choose whether pc suite will always convert content to make it more mobile friendly. All of this is done through the new “Settings” option in menu where you can set audio & video conversion parameters and specify default location paths for Data, Music, Video and Applications files on your Nokia handset .
The second neat addition is the message preview window, that shows the latest incoming messages. It can be minimized to a small bar. A click on the message opens the Nokia text message editor giving you options to reply, forward and all the other usual functions.
For those new to PC Suite: Nokia PC Suite is a package of Windows-based PC applications developed especially for use with Nokia phones. Depending on your phone model, Nokia PC Suite lets you edit, synchronize and back up many of your phone’s files on acompatible PC through a cable or wireless bluetooth connection.
Here’s the official list of changes from the old version:
- Copy files to your device by dragging them on top of the device image in the main window
- Synchronize Windows Vista Calendar with your device calendar
- Get bug fixes and improvements to stability
