Nokia revamps the Ovi Browser for S40
According to Nokia Conversations, the official Nokia blog, Series 40 devices will be getting an upgrade for their Ovi Browser. They claim that the Ovi Browser Beta will bring a "faster, richer and more enjoyable way of searching for content on the Web, right from your mobile phone."

For starters, the browser is receiving a visual overhaul with a brighter color scheme. The start page will also be customized with popular links based on your location. Among these preloaded bookmarks are Twitter, Orkut, IMDB, Yahoo!, Photobucket and Amazon.

The new version of Ovi Browser will support 85 different languages, and has added specific start pages for India, Indonesia, Russia, and China. As was the case with the previous Ovi Browser, Series 40 devices will still have access to the proxy server, which pre-processes your popular websites in order to minimize data demands by up to 90%.

Nokia reiterated their February 11th announcements, saying that "Further extensions to the capabilities of Series 40 devices are a key part of Nokia's strategy...as it moves to provide mobile devices for the 'next billion' users." To download the new browser, follow the Nokia link below, and visit the "Ovi Browser Beta" link.

Tried to download same to a registered S40 through ovi but sadly, Nokia hasn't gotten itself upto mark and seems to be slipping away. Got this message for downloading the ovi browser beta: "Sorry, this item is not available in your language. Browse more great content in the "Related" section below."
