Via the Beta Labs, Nokia has just rolled out a brand new beta of the Ovi Suite with a brand new home view which concentrates on improving the general quality of the suite with special regard to stability, sync and the maps loading experience. Another major focus has been better integration of the Ovi Music and eliminating the need of needing the Ovi Player for music management and downloads.
Additionally the installation and first time use wizards have been optimized to reduce steps needed to start to use Nokia Ovi Suite.
