Nokia Store QML v3.16(30) beta Symbian^3 SymbianOS 9.5 Signed
Nokia Betalabs team has just released a early beta preview v3.16(30) of new app Store client for Symbian^3 devices for testing. The new Store client is based on Qt QML and features Belle like navigation bottom bar.
The brand new Store client for Symbian^3 handsets comes with big changes – You can feel the big UI revamp following the upcoming Symbian Belle interface, New Nokia (blue) logo and more.
Bits from Betalabs Blog:
“We are offering members of the Nokia Beta Labs community a preview of the new Store client. Please help us in testing it before it is deployed in a software update.”
This beta Store client will replace the current Store client on your Symbian^3 or Symbian Anna device, and it supports nearly all of the features as the official Store client (Web Runtime). The key new features this client brings include:
Improved product details view, for a rich and fluid discovery experience
Quicker, smoother and more responsive than WRT client
Compatibility: Store QML client is available for the following devices: Nokia C6-01, C7-00, C7 Astound, E7-00, N8-00, X7-00
- The beta Store is about 18.7 MB in size.
- Client may take a while to install.
Known issues/additional information
For the PS1 users (device software version 01x.xxx, dial *#0000# to verify software version), after the installation of this client, the new store icon won’t be displayed in the App grid until the device is rebooted. That is a firmware issue in PS1.
The existing Java apps and widgets apps will work if you launch them from the phone App menu. But to launch the Java apps and widgets from the Store client, users will be required to download and install again. That’s because the unique IDs are not provided by the Backend for those two type of contents, causing the gap between the WRT and this QML client.
Nokia E6-00 is not supported yet. User experience and resolution are still being optimized.
Hint:If Nokia Store does not load after installation simply install it again without uninstalling not working version.
