Ok now I have had my rant at Nokia Shop, I can get back to my normal blogging!

The people over at Nokia Beta Labs have been working hard on the Nokia Software Updater and have released a next version (3.0.156) of the beta with the following updates:

  • Automatic device SW checker
  • Improved download time estimation
  • Improved download reliability
  • Support for widget type application updates (N8)
  • Minor UI changes

Download the latest beta from Nokia Beta Labs (Don’t forget as this is a beta it may have bugs so be careful, you don’t want to mess up your phone!):

The team also wanted to say:

The improvements in both the download time estimation and download reliability have been influenced by the testing that has been done within the beta community.  So, on behalf of the NSU team, thanks for your contribution!

There are still a few quibbles which the Beta Labs team need to work on, including better compatibility for the S60 5th Widgets so hopefully these will be next!
