Nokia Optimizes Mobile Documents for Symbian^3

Nokia Beta Labs is endeavoring to solve what it calls “the #1 problem in email,” the handling of heavy attachments and documents.

Consequently, Nokia is kick-starting the new year with the introduction of Mobile Documents, a push email solution that allows users to view and read large attachments instantly – without a download – via “unconventional use of streaming technology.”

Promising to save its users time, bandwidth and roaming costs, Nokia says that unlike traditional email, which is downloaded, Mobile Documents delivers an array of options to reading your messages and attachments by way of an entire toolbox.

The new offering is chalked up as one of Nokia’s latest efforts to “create the best possible user experience to manage emails on your phone including attachments as well as sharing documents.”

According to Nokia, Mobile Documents was developed by messaging solutions provider Visiarc and optimized for smartphones running Symbian^3.

The Symbian^3 version includes two major new features: (1) Multi-Touch: Pinch zoom for viewing images, PDFs and Office Documents, and (2) Notifications: Home Screen Widgets for all your email accounts plus optional sounds and/or alerts for news emails and/or documents

Nokia, however, is quick to remind users that this is “beta” software and future improvements and tweaks are ahead.
