Nokia Photo Browser experiment concluded (application available on Ovi store)

Nokia started some time ago to publish an experimental application called Photo browser. For those of you who don't know about it, it's an evolution or better said a revolution of the Nokia photo gallery application. The app was experimental, meaning it could turn into a beta, or not. It seems that even though the experiment has ended, Nokia did not let go of the app. Instead, they plan to integrate it into the Gallery application available on Symbian^1 phones. This comes as good news, if you consider that the current Gallery application (excepting that of the C6-00) is unbelievably slow at generating thumbnails and navigation trough pictures.

The Photo browser, as it was available on the Betalabs page, had no chance of becoming an independent product in itself, due to the lack of file managing options. So, as it seems, Nokia decided to take parts of it and integrate them into the Gallery application. Combining the two may end up in S^1 users actually having a decent photo browser on their phones.
