Finally! Nokia goodness for the Mac June 11, 2007

In my job as a tech reviewer I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing most of the line of the new Nokia N Series phones, but have benn forced to interface with Windows PCs since Macs and Nokias have never really seen eye to eye – or ear to ear. Until now, that is.

Nokia’s released a beta version of Nokia Media Transfer 1.0, which enables most of the Mac goodness we know and love to work with their N Series of mobile phones, including interfacing with iTunes, iPhoto and transfer music, video, photos, podcasts and all sorts of media natively and automatically via USB or Bluetooth. It’s a wonderful breakthrough app that just might bridge the long-running communication gap between Mac users and Nokia phones. It’s not comprehensive and still a bit limited, but it’s a great start.

Nokia Media Transfer 1.0 Beta is currently compatible with the N70, N70 Music Edition, N71, N72, N73, N73 Music Edition, N75, N76, N77, N80, N90, N91, N92, N93, N93i and N95 models. It requires at least a fully updated Mac OS X 10.4.9 or higher installation, and at least iTunes 7.0 and iPhoto 6.0. If you got one of the N Series and want to try it out, you can get it at the Nokia site here. It comes in a free 2.2mb ZIP package, and in English only. Keep in mind that even if it’s a 1.0 version, it’s still in beta, but it works fine with the N76 I’m currently using. So far.

There’s a sequential installation gallery after the jump if you want to get an idea what it does first before you try it:

Dare we hope for a Nokia Mac Suite in the near future?
