Nokia Beta Labs release Nokia Drop

Published by at

Nokia Beta Labs has announced yet another experimental project, called Nokia Drop. This project sets out to push content from your desktop browser to your phone. Pushed content comes in the forum of URL's, files, images as files, or images as wallpapers. The desktop end requires a browser plugin; Firefox and Chrome are currently the only supported browsers. The phone application is available for S60 5th Edition and Symbian^3. Read on for more.

As the Beta Lab team always emphasises, these are highly experimental services and so you should expect bugs. In fact we tested this morning and had issues. We certainly like the idea of this though, especially for piping unwieldy URL's with minimum fuss.

If you're feeling brave, have a try and give the Beta Labs team your feedback, and let us know in the comments here too.

Now, over to Nokia's John Markow to give you a demonstration of how it should work!
