Nokia Beta Labs service Mobile Web Server is shutting down at the end of the month, after two years of offering free online access to your Symbian blower. Now, that wouldn’t happen to have anything to do with Nokia’s mystery Ovi announcement later this week?
Mobile Web Server, a free service which lets you access your phone from your PC, is to be “archived” from Nokia Beta Labs at the end of January. You’ll still be able to use it in local mode, but will no longer be able to log in to your phone from a URL on your desktop.
Nokia calls surprise Ovi press conference
Could we be about to see a relaunch of the service though? In an email sent from the Mobile Web Server team, users are told that “Future plans are still open so we can’t say yet how this activity will evolve further, but as a team we are strong believers that this kind of concept will become a trend some day.”
Could Mobile Web Server’s closure have anything to do with the Nokia Ovi press conference going down on Thursday morning? Could we be seeing a major relaunch and rebranding for the service? A Nokia spokesperson declined to comment when we asked if the two were related, but we’ll be on hand come Thursday to report back on whatever Nokia’s cooking up.
