It's a 19MB download, but that includes Qt and QML libraries.
Note the Belle UI throughout. We'll be seeing this more and more over the next couple of months.
All existing account settings and logins etc. are preserved, it's a neat install over the old Ovi Store client.
Also noteworthy are subtle changes at the Store back-end in terms of tweaked and improved 'Collections'.
From the Beta Labs page:
We are offering members of the Nokia Beta Labs community a preview of the new Store client. Please help us in testing it before it is deployed in a software update.
This beta Store client will replace the current Store client on your Symbian^3 or Symbian Anna device, and it supports nearly all of the features as the official Store client (Web Runtime). The key new features this client brings include:
- Easier navigation
- Improved product details view, for a rich and fluid discovery experience
- Quicker, smoother and more responsive than WRT client
To get the new version of the Nokia Store client, visit the Beta Labs page now if you have a Symbian^3/Anna phone (other than the E6, which is 'coming soon').
