Nokia PC Suite is a collection of tools that allows your Nokia handset to connect to your Windows machine and sync data, back up your phone’s contents, push software updates to your phone, as well as share files between desktop and mobile phone. Supporting a long list of Nokia phones, Nokia PC Suite is easy to install and launch on your Windows machine.
The PC Suite connections, features, and add-on applications available to you after installation depend on your phone’s built-in software. This software will enable you to connect your mobile phone to any desktop PC to sync data, back up, download and install software, update software, share pictures and music between the mobile phone and PC.
The interface used by Nokia PC Suite is simple, using a set of icons to show different tasks. When a phone is connected, it appears with its status in the left pane of the software; the right pane with the icons for various tasks provides quick action. Nokia PC Suite lets you sync Outlook on your desktop to your phone, and that capability works well. A neat capability is to dock your phone with your laptop or desktop and use the phone as a modem for Internet access. In use, we found Nokia PC Suite to be friendly, relatively fast, and trouble free.
If you have a supported Nokia phone (which includes most models from the last few years), Nokia PC Suite is a useful add-on to your Windows machine. The ability to back up and update your phone is handy, and the integration for calendars, contacts, and music or photo files is handy. We liked Nokia PC Suite quite a lot.
