In an online event later today Nokia will demonstrate the new personal information management (PIM) sync functionality of Ovi.com, as well as the recently launched Nokia Ovi Suite for PC and the Files on Ovi remote access service.
These different elements of Ovi help users to manage thier personal information and media in various ways through a simple and unified interface.
The latest version of Ovi.com, which is now available as a public beta, offers free functionality for syncing the user’s calendar, contacts, notes and tasks between a Nokia mobile device and Ovi.com. With this functionality, Ovi.com users can now create an online backup of their important information that they can access and edit anytime when connected to the internet. Nokia believes this improves a customer’s mobile experience by safeguarding their personal information in case their device is lost or stolen.
With the Nokia Ovi Suite for PC application users can copy files and information from thier Nokia mobile device to the computer; back up the contents of the Nokia device; and drag and drop photos and videos to Share on Ovi, the media sharing service Nokia launched earlier this year.
Jussi Nevanlinna, vice president of product and portfolio management in Nokia’s services and software business, stated: “Today we are showing people how you can easily backup, sync and share your content using Ovi services on your PC, the web and your mobile device. Our stepwise approach to rolling out and integrating these and other elements of Ovi lets us learn and adjust according to the feedback we receive from people, so that we can constantly improve the user’s experience of our services. We recognize that in the services business bringing something new to market is not the end of its development, it’s only the beginning.”
Files on Ovi allows you to remotely access the files on your internet-connected personal computers from any browser-enabled mobile phone or computer. You can also store files online in your Anytime Files personal storage area so that they are always accessible to you. The service is based on the software and expertise Nokia obtained through the acquisition of Avvenu in December 2007.
