Nokia's Ovi Store now allows pushing wirelessly content to your phone
Nokia’s Ovi Store for Symbian apps is now powered by Nokia Drop, allowing you to wirelessly push apps, themes, ringtones and wallpapers to your handset. This basically brings a quick and easy way to install content on your device as you don’t have to deal with SMS confirmations or use any external plug-ins.

Turning auto installation of apps means that you won’t even need to confirm that you want to install new software on your phone. To benefit from it, you need to use Internet Explorer, Firefox or Chrome (sorry, Mac users, no Safari support). Nokia Drop is compatible with S60 5th Edition and Symbian^3 devices.

then you and your friend both doesnt even know how to restart nokia n8 ...when / if it freezes ...if you phone does ever crash, just hold the on/off button for approx 8-10 seconds and it will vibrate 3 times. Then wait a few seconds and turn it back on, everything works again... learn how to use a phone then criticize a phone ... and one more thing .. if you dont like symbian dont post here ... symbian is not begging you for your replies ...

They want to keep people with Symbian devices happy. Simple as that. This is a really good features though, other OS's should do this too.

Obviously your friend did not know how to work out a symbian phone, If the phone freezes he just has to press and hold the power button for 8 secs and the phone will disconnect the battery internally and restart.

Really cool new features coming to Symbian. I think it's too little, too late, however. The belle OS is looking really nice. If Nokia had come out with this around the same time as the G1, then a MUCH bigger splash would have been made. If Belle runs well on the Nokia E6 and a GOOD integrated true push email solution exists on the OS (not the buggy, sometimes works, mostly it doesn't nokia messaging service, and not the email header downloading, that takes forever) I will get an E6 for sure!

When an app or idea is blueprinted into an os it can be ported to another but at least the blueprint is there. 20 years of and os can not and should not be forgotten over night. Nokia makes great phones the top in every category they are a formidable company. Not to be taken lightly. We can only hope that the methodology with the same love and dedication can be translated to an os like WP7 os. I'm sure we won't be disappointed. As far as the app it's great but doesnt android already offer a similar service. So nothing really new, I could be mistaken.
