Browsing the internet ‘is about to get even faster and easier’ through the Nokia Browser 2.0 update for Series 40 devices, states the Finland-based manufacturer. And to make that happen, the application is apparently capable of compressing data up to a total of 90%.
Well, if it works as Nokia says, users on a limited or pay-per-use plan are most likely to save up on data charges. And besides this, the cloud-accelerated browsing feature could even speed up the website loading process by around 3 times. To complement the quick browsing speeds the application has to offer, it comes bearing a download manager. Through this, music, video, pictures and much more can be saved straight onto the memory card while surfing the web.
“Getting online fast, and affordably, is crucial for Internet users everywhere. Now that experience is about to get even faster and easier with an update for all existing Nokia Browser users, covering phones across the Nokia Asha range and Series 40 devices. We know Nokia Browser is often the first, and main, way of accessing the Internet for millions of you in dynamic fast-growing parts of the world. Since the browser launched last year you’ve been able to access all the information you need, without the headache of worrying about your data bill,” stats a post on the Nokia Conversations blog.
With the app, users will be entitled to share links and post comments to popular social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, straight from the browser’s interface. And those residing in China should also be able to carry out similar tasks with services like Sina Weibo and RenRen. In addition to these, it comes bearing support for web apps with over 10,000 applications in its current catalog.
The Nokia Browser 2.0 update for Series 40 devices is available for download through the Nokia Store. Compatible handsets include the Nokia Asha range, Nokia C3-00, C2-03 and X3-02 as well as various others from the Nokia Series 40 lineup.
