About a week after Nokia announced an update of the web browser of its S40 devices, the Finnish handset company has now announced yet another update of the same. The upgraded web browser, whose beta form is available now, comes with a whole set of new features.
Nokia had in the past dropped the OVI name – changing ‘OVI Maps’ to ‘Nokia Maps’ and ‘OVI browser’ to ‘Nokia Browser’. Apart from just the name change, Nokia had given smartphone like features to the Nokia browser for S40 devices.
This time Nokia has announced a beta launch of the new S40 browser with some more features to add to the kitty.
The new Nokia S40 beta browser features an all new download manager which will allow the device to download files in the background. Users would also be able to pause and resume downloads which were impossible earlier.
Also, the new browser features a quick access social media toolbar that will allow users to post stuff on social media websites with just one touch. A new translator toolbar will allow one touch translation of international websites (something like the Google translate feature).
Nokia has also promises many such unique toolbars in the future releases and updates of the application as well.
Nokia browser for S40 also comes with a long press to save feature as well, which means users can just long press on any image and save it to phone especially added for the new touch and type devices.
And last but not the least, Nokia plans to add localised home pages too for all the countries as well. As of now it has customised pages for South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria, Vietnam, and Pakistan to begin with and promises to add more soon.
Interested users can either download the new browser from the Nokia Beta Labs or can also hit the OVI Store with this link from your device to download.
