Nella giornata di ieri Pekka Rissanen, Manager dei Nokia Betalabs ha annunciato la nuova versione del programma Nokia Here and Now. La nuova release è ora basata su una interfaccia utente migliorata e ottimizzata per l’utilizzo dei telefoni cellulari al fine di mantenere i tempi di download molto brevi. 

Riportiamo qui di seguito quanto scritto sul blog ufficiale dei Nokia betalabs:

The time has come to say thanks and goodbye. Here and now is about to leave the safety of Beta Labs and enter the big wide world.

The Here and now team would like to thank all users for your valuable feedback. With your help we were able to refine the concept and weed out the quirks. After all, you know what you want.

Based on your feedback, we have created a new version of Here and now. The main difference is that the UI is now browser-based. Although liked by many (including us), the previews were an unnecessary extra step when the services are web based anyhow. Also, there were situations where the fit between the application UI and the browser was not smooth enough.

The new Here and now downloads a web page showing the weather and the highlights of local movies, restaurants and events. The page is automatically customized according to your location, language and screen resolution. It is also optimized for mobile usage in order to keep the download times short.

As you probably know, these services are now also available via Nokia Ovi Maps 3.03. What’s the point of Here and now then? Simply put, it offers the highlights at a glance in the browser. We like to give alternatives – you decide what you like.

The new version is available via Software Update (over-the-air or through Ovi Suite) and in Ovi Store for these devices:

Nokia 6710 Navigator
Nokia E52
Nokia E55
Nokia E72
Nokia 5800 XpressMusic
Nokia 5230
Nokia 5235
Nokia X6
Nokia N97 Mini

Note: It is probably a good idea to uninstall the Beta Labs version first.

We hope to add more devices soon. If your device is not listed yet, you can still keep on using the Beta Labs version.

Many thanks and bye for now!

On behalf of the Here and now team,

Pekka Rissanen
