Universal Search Beta has been a trial for a one-box search solution, which enables users to easily access all types of content whether it be on the device or in the “cloud”.

The Nokia Custom Dictionary application has had a good experimental run, here at Beta Labs. During the trial, we have been pleasantly surprised by the enthusiastic response it has received. We are very happy many users have found great use for the application. We have gathered lots of valuable feedback in the process. In fact, we have reached a stage where we need to conclude this trial and investigate how best to use our findings.
I just wanted to give you a heads up that a new beta version of Wellness Diary is in the works to help you manage and improve your wellness. With it you'll be able to set individual goals in several areas (weight, sleep, exercise, activity, diet, stress, etc.) and see your progress immediately with graphs and, if you like, share with and get feedback from others.
We’re now closing the Nokia Easy Meet beta trial as we have met all of our planned research goals on this project and are preparing to move on to the “next generation” of mobile collaboration and sharing.
In practice this means that the feedback forums at Nokia Beta Labs won’t be actively monitored and Easy Meet will be taken out of the list of active beta trials. However, you can continue to use the Easy Meet service “as is” at http://easymeet.nokia.com.
The Mobile Codes experimental beta was one of the first items in the Nokia Beta Labs catalog, added in April 2007. The Mobile Codes site makes it easy to generate your own barcodes for use on websites, promotional materials and business cards.

Nokia Braille Reader, the experimental application for accessing incoming text messages using Braille and tactile feedback, is being archived from Beta Labs.
Written by Jorma Hekkanen, Senior Manager, Mobile Web Server
After over two and a half years in beta, Mobile Web Server is now being archived from Nokia Beta Labs. We’re sorry it has to be this way, but as an experimental prototype, there’s no guarantee that it will last forever. Future plans are still open so we can’t say yet how this activity will evolve further, but as a team we are strong believers that this kind of concept will become a trend some day.

As you know, Sports Tracker was one of the first apps published at Beta Labs. It began as an experimental research prototype for sportsmen and women to collect and share their training activity and routes.
As part of some end-of-year gardening in the Beta Labs site, we've changed the status of Nokia Sports Tracker in our portfolio to "archived" since, from a research perspective, this beta has run its course.

Nokia Audio Smileys, our minor side-project for kids (and like-minded people), didn't really catch fire… So I guess it's time to call it quits and announce this as archived. For those interested, we left the app available "as is". As always, thanks for your feedback on this!!
