Nokia Lets Users Update Phone Software Directly

Nokia announced today that, after successful trials last year, it is expanding its Software Updater application, which will allow people to update the software on their mobile phones without the need to travel to a carrier-related retail or service location. The updater is a free application that users can download to their computers. Once installed, users connect their compatible phone via USB and the software will detect the device, determine if updates are available, and then help users perform the update. According to the Nokia site, it works with about 37 different models, including the N Series and E Series devices. Updates can also be performed over the air, but not through Bluetooth. Nokia also says user data (contacts, photos, games, applications) will be erased during the update process and needs to be backed up beforehand.
This would be great if...
Nice to finally catch up here Nokia.
This is a good thing.
