Where is Ovi maps 3.06?

Anyone know where I can get this?

The web site says I have to visit ovi store and get it there, but it's not there.
It doesn't seem to be available for download on their web site either.

Oh, and I read somewhere that Nokia deliberately hides it for the N97 software updater, because of the limited C-space :(

I visited that page but there is no download option.

It says that I must download via ovi shop.

And when I go there, it is nowhere to be found!

Just found it!

It is NOT in Ovi Store.

It is available via the update facility on the N97.

Updating now as I type.

The web page gives incorrect info.

For N97, the version available via software updates is 3.04. This will eat up the C drive. For Symbian^3, the version is 3.06. Well this is what I found before I 'surrended' my N97 a month ago.

I am sure that the web site says 3.06 is available for the N97.
Just can't find it anywhere.

I am looking forward to dumping my N97 when due an upgrade in July.

Unless anything better comes onto the market, I am looking at an adroid based phone.
Possibly a Nexus s (I think it is called).

I just signed into the site mentioned above (Nkia Beta Labs) and downloaded the .sis file for Ovi Maps 3.06.

If you're thinking of an android device, you may want to look at the Motorola Atrix 4G. Dual core processor. 1 GB RAM. 4" screen. See here:-

And me now too!

The download button was not there on the days I tried, but is there now.

I will need this when I visit Germany later in the year.

belated comment, i've put the Android qwerty slider HTC Doubleshoot on my hit list, though it's probably a while away from being ready...

i agree with many of Steve Litchfield about the E7, there is a lot of like about it, but 2 features which almost certainly make it a no go; lack of a AF camera (i snap documents often) and removable battery (i tend to keep a phone for 2yrs+ and am concerned i am unable to change the battery myself or swap a spare for long journeys)
