Update: Nokia Mobile Search 4.0

The latest version of Nokia's search tool (as seen in the Nseries N95 8GB and N81) is now available for download for a select number of handsets (N95, 6110, 6290, N76, 5700, 6120). In addition to the previous web and local search functionality the new version now offers more comprehensive in-device search. There's also support for continuous search with result updated as you enter your search term.

The in-device search not allows you to search through various categories of data. Categories include: Music, Contacts, Calendar, Messages, Email messages, Bookmarks, Images, Videos, Landmarks, Applications and Notes. You can either search all categories simultaneously or, by pressing right of the direction pad when the appropriate category is selected, search in only on category.

The search is continuous meaning that results will updates themselves as you enter your search term.

This is an extremely powerful application and is a very welcome inclusion to Nokia's S60 software suite.

Nokia Search provides a more powerful search functionality than that which is built into in various standard applications. In the Contacts application, for example, the search is by first name / last name, but Nokia Search searches across more fields (though in my tests I found it seems to only index one phone number per contact - the most recently entered).

Also worth noting is that Nokia Search only indexes full words, thus to search for 0800123456 you would need enter '080012', '123456' would not work (this is really only an issue with number searches).

Although an Active Standby plug-in is provided on handsets that ship with this version of search (N81, N95 8GB) it does not appear to be available in the downloadable version which is a shame. However you can get much of the same speed by using one of the standby application shortcut slots for Nokia Search (configurable via Tools-> Settings-> Personalisation -> Standby mode).



The Internet Search remains a key feature, local search is also supported in select markets. Rather annoyingly I lost my local search provider when I updated the software. This will probably appear in a few days as the application has the ability to updates the services it uses over the air using the Update function in the Options menu.



The older versions of Nokia Search remain available for other handsets. Further updates may become available for other handsets in due course.

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?

I have downloaded the latest version of Nokia's search tool for my 6120 classic, but I can only use it to search the web or yell.com.

How do I get it to search..................
categories : Music, Contacts, Calendar, Messages, Email messages, Bookmarks, Images, Videos, Landmarks, Applications and Notes?

Thanks
