In an online event later today Nokia will demonstrate the new personal information management (PIM) sync functionality of Ovi.com, as well as the recently launched Nokia Ovi Suite for PC and the Files on Ovi remote-access service.
Nokia said that those different elements of Ovi would help consumers manage their personal information and media in various ways through a simple and unified interface.
"Today we are showing people how you can easily backup, sync and share your content using Ovi services on your PC, the web and your mobile device", said Jussi Nevanlinna, Vice President of Product and Portfolio Management in Nokia's Services & Software business. "Our stepwise approach to rolling out and integrating these and other elements of Ovi lets us learn and adjust according to the feedback we receive from people, so that we can constantly improve the user's experience of our services. We recognize that in the services business bringing something new to market is not the end of its development - it's only the beginning."
The latest version of Ovi.com, which is now available as a public beta, offers free functionality for syncing calendar, contacts, notes and tasks between a Nokia mobile device and www.ovi.com. With this functionality Ovi.com users can now create an online backup of their important information that they can access and edit anytime when connected to the internet.
With the Nokia Ovi Suite for PC application users can easily copy files and information from their Nokia mobile device to their computer; back up the contents of their Nokia device; and drag-and-drop photos and videos to Share on Ovi, the media sharing service Nokia launched earlier this year.
Files on Ovi allows users to remotely access the files on their internet-connected personal computers from any browser-enabled mobile phone or computer. Users can also store files online in their Anytime Files personal storage area so that they are always accessible to them.
