Video: Nokia Ovi Suite 3.0 beta from Beta Labs

You may have seen this but if you haven’t here’s a video of Nokia Ovi Suite 3.0 Beta.

It comes with two major improvements including new home view and new music player.

You can try it out over at Nokia Beta Labs (though all I’m getting is a URL error after clicking download).

You’ll need to sign in with your Nokia Account first though to try beta labs stuff.

Do you use Ovi Suite? I’m not really that big of an Ovi Suite user. For photos/videos it’s so easy to just drag and drop stuff (Can’t believe you cannot do this with iPhone/iTouch). That’s really the only reason I’d connect N8 to PC. That, for software updates and to tether a Nokia to laptop to get some internet. One of my housemates is surprisingly an Ovi Suite user for E71 and finds it really easy to use, automatically syncing data, music, photos etc. I’ll have to give Ovi Suite a proper go especially with the 3.0 beta.

Syncing is somewhat of an annoyance as it takes FOREVER and though I’m hoping it’s more my laptop (synced fine on another though that was when N8 was new and had barely any info)

    It takes too long to install, and the file size is at 92mb which is even more than biggest bloat available – itunes on windows :0

    Once up and running, I think the interface is improving but you still get transferred to your web browser when you click on app you want to install. Also, the calendar import function is not there… so not bad, but a long way to go.

      They need to integrate Ovi Calendar with this damn thing. Would make life SOOOOOO much better.

    I’ve found backing up more of a problem than anything else when using Ovi Suite 2.2.
    I definitely use it to sync music moreso than I’d ever thought I would. Better integration with the store a la iTunes (with increased content please) as well as my previous comment on calendar integration in addition to being able to view Emails and this would be THE tool

    Will they ever add a functionality to backup messages?
