Hi, and welcome to the external beta launch of Nokia Email service!
What a summer, huh? To be honest.. we haven't had too many sunny days here in up north, so most of our team has returned back to office already. To brighten up things, we wanted to address some of the problems that our ever-faithful Beta labs audience had encountered with our first release.
To sum up in short: We've got an updated version of Nokia Chat available, please download.

Most of us prefer using a PC keyboard over mobile device keyboard when we're sitting next to our PCs while attending a blazing conversation. To make the most out of Nokia Chat while chatting - we now provide some simple instructions on how to configure your favourite IM client on PC to run on Nokia Chat.

The team has benefited a lot from your invaluable feedback and we have incorporated many of these sugestion into our latest version.

Here's one more reason for you to finally upgrade to the "final" version of Nokia Maps 2.0: we are going to stop supporting satellite images on the beta client soon.
Don't worry, just upgrade and you'll still receive satellite maps as before. (not to mention getting the other cool stuff like network based positioning, which is ultra-fast and works also indoors)
As discussed earlier, we have now moved Nokia Text Messenger and Nokia Location Tagger to Beta Labs Archive. This means that you can continue using them, but Nokia is not further developing these as standalone apps, nor fixing any bugs.
The good news is that you can expect to get similar functionality integrated as part of standard Nokia offering in the future. Thanks for your valuable comments!!
