Files on Ovi goes beta

Chris Ziegler

Nokia has flipped the switch on a new component of its Ovi platform, the aptly-named Files, which allows music, photos, and a variety of miscellaneous files on a Vista or XP-based desktop PC to be accessed straight from your phone. The technology is actually nothing new -- it stems from Nokia's acquisition of Avvenu, which powered the similarly styled Motorola SHARE -- so it's really only the re-launch on Ovi that's making news. Unlike some other Ovi components, you'll have to pay to play with Files; subscriptions will be available with 10GB or 30GB of storage, which allows "Anytime Files" to be uploaded and offered even when the PC's off. Right now, the only option is to sign up for a 60-day free trial, but Nokia will eventually be making the rounds to get your credit card information.
