Along with the release of Symbian Anna for all devices that landed on shelves with the Symbian^3 operating system on board, Nokia also made available upgraded tools that would enable users update their phones to the new platform release.
One of these is the Nokia Software Updater, available for machines running under Microsoft's Windows platform, which was just released in a stable flavor, 3.0.495.
Previously available in a beta flavor, the application is now gold, and is up for grabs for all those who would like to give it a try.
“Nokia Software Updater 3.0.495 for Windows has been released to consumers. When you start your NSU client next time, you will get the latest NSU version automatically,” the development team notes in a post on the Nokia Beta Labs.
The software is expected to taste various other enhancements in the near future, yet it seems that none of them will be a major upgrade, one that might bring along changes to the interface, the development team explains.
The release notes for the new Nokia Software Updater 3.0.495 for Windows include:
- Support for Symbian Anna release
- Application update fixes
- USB HUB Warning
The application is available for download for all computers running under Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7, and offers users the possibility to easily download and install new software on their mobile phones.
For that, the Nokia device should be connected to the computer, and all data on the phone should be backed up. The NSU will only find new OS flavors for the handset.
All those who will give the application a try should consider offering feedback on the experience they receive from it, so that more enhancements will be added into the mix via future updates.
