Those of you using Nokia Series 40 devices have the ability to update your browser starting today. Nokia has officially announced Nokia Browser 2.0, which bring a host of improvements.

"With our new version, we've created a newer, faster, better browsing experience. As many consumers around the world will experience the internet for the first time through a mobile phone, this is a great step towards our goal to connect the 'Next Billion'," explains Dieter May, senior vice president of mobile phones services, Nokia.

The major update is said to reduce data consumption by up to 90%, making Internet access faster and cheaper for many customers.  Nokia Browser 2.0 utilizes cloud-based servers to optimize standard pages for Nokia Series 40 devices. This technique allows pages to load up to three times faster.

The browser features an inviting and intuitive start page that gives users one-click access to top, local sites. The Download Manager has also been improved to easily manage music, videos, and pictures while browsing the Internet.

Nokia Browser 2.0 is available for touch, QWERTY, and non-touch Series 40 devices including the Asha series, the Nokia C3-00, Nokia C2-03, and the Nokia X3-02. The update will be available as an OTA update or it can be downloaded from the Nokia Store for free. It is available in 87 languages in over 200 countries.

The update downloaded to my Nokia 201 & then disappeared from the phone. I had downloaded the beta Nokia browser from Nokia's own Ovi store a couple of weeks earlier.
After the browser update had finished 'installing,' I want to check the updated browser version. It was the same version 1.8.0 as it was before the 'update!' So, I go to Ovi to download the new version, only I'm told at Ovi, that my phone can't download this new browser and the offer me the browsers used in Asian sub-continent. What was even more sickening is the browser I'd downloaded a couple of weeks earlier had disappeared from Ovi. This meant that if you had version 1.8.0 & something happened to your phone & you had to reinstall your all your apps, you couldn't reinstall the version 1.8.0 beta Nokia browser, because it no longer excited! I'm sure you all know about 'Catch-22,' well that's what Nokia has provided its customer base with, by releasing the new version 2.0 of it beta Nokia browser, and the removal of the older version.
If anyone reads this & needs the older version of the beta Nokia browser that now officially doesn’t exist anymore go to website or wapsite getjar.com. You can find it there free of charge to download.
