Nokia Social 1.3 release plans updated, v1.4 plans teased

Published by at

Nokia Social 1.3, whose official appearance in the Ovi Store was reported on here, has formally 'graduated' from Nokia Beta Labs, according to a blog post today. Apparently it won't also appear in Nokia SW_update on current devices until Symbian Anna is released, presumably for technical reasons, so grab it from the Store instead for now. Interestingly, Nokia Social 1.4 was teased, including better Facebook integration and performance, plus automatic contact linking and smoother kinetic scrolling.

From the blog post:

We are very excited to announce that we have launched Social 1.3 in Ovi Store.  Update will be available via Nokia Software Updater tool for Nokia N8, C6-01, C7, and E7 when Symbian Anna is released for those devices. 

There will be new exciting feature enhancements coming soon including:

  • Facebook Notifications
  • Facebook Photos swipe
  • Continuous scrolling
  • Automatic contact linking

Stay tuned and please give us your valuable feedback when we release Social 1.4 Beta!

As with previous Nokia Social betas, we hope to be the first to bring you a run through of the new features.
