Nokia Mac software beta
Finnish cellphone maker Nokia has released a new beta version of its Multimedia Transfer software, which is specifically designed for Macs. The program exploits Apple's iLife suite, allowing users sync photos in either direction through iPhoto, or copy music to a phone via iTunes. It also handles more routine synching of content such as videos, games, and various other applications.
The v1.3 beta of Multimedia Transfer, which is currently only available from Nokia's European website, makes two major updates. First is the ability to sync bookmarks from Safari, in a manner similar to that for the iPhone. The software is now also compatible with various S40-based phones, such as the E50, E90 and N71. Mac OS X 10.4.9 is required, along with iTunes 7 and iPhoto 6.
