Nokia Email Growing Up, Enters Beta Labs Tomorrow

Readers who own an S60 handset from Nokia may or may not have heard of an application that Nokia has has done a fairly good job of keeping relatively hush. One of the biggest complaints S60 users have in general is the lackluster email client and less-than-reliable performance that comes along with it. There are plenty of third-party options out there of course, but none that is truly optimal and geared specifically for personal use. Nokia Email is Nokia’s first attempt at just that; a premium email client geared toward personal use as opposed to enterprise. We just got off a conference call the Nokia Email Product Manager and we have to say that the future is looking pretty bright for this app / service combo. Here are some highlights from the call:

  • Nokia Email goes live on Nokia Beta Labs tomorrow
  • Nokia Email will be a pay service once it exits beta; cost will be integrated into carrier data plans
  • Users not on a carrier with whom Nokia has an agreement will still have access to the client, pricing info not yet available
  • Future features:
    • Focus on value added services – plenty coming that is not in the current beta
    • Multiple email accounts will be supported – current beta client supports only one account
    • Software update notifications will be automatic – install overlay will not remove settings
    • Folder support is one of their top priorities – archiving, etc

The service itself has a long way to go but it’ll get there if you’re patient. Nokia also seems to be paying particular attention to feedback surrounding this app so don’t be shy in telling them what you want. Feel free to mention HTML support, though we know it’s already on Nokia’s radar…
