Application updates come to Nokia Software Updater

Published by at

Nokia Beta Labs have announced the first release candidate for the next version of Nokia Software Updater (NSU). The beta test is open until the end of August. In addition to managing firmware, the new version of NSU will now offer application updates, much like the built-in Software Update application on Nokia phones.

Once installed, the beta version can be found under the Nokia program menu, with the name of "Nokia Software Updater 3"

Where to find the NSU3 beta

In their own words:

Today we have a new release of Nokia Software Updater to share with the Nokia Beta Labs community.  Our previous update addressed Windows 7 support, improved USB connectivity, and What’s New release notes.  Today’s release includes device application updates and improvements in the user experience.

We have tested with an N82 and E72, and the devices were detected & updated properly.
