Beta Labs make available a "release candidate" of Nokia Notifications

It’s long been an issue with Nokia users that software features on device ‘a’ don't seem to be present on device ‘b’, and one of the areas pointed out by many is the system of notifications in the 3rd Edition Eseries devices. Now a combined “catcher” for alerts to missed calls, voicemails, arriving messages and emails and upcoming calendar appointments has been released by Nokia Beta Labs for the Nokia N97 and N97 mini homescreen.

Read on in the full article.

don't we have this already?

Pardon my ignorance, but isn't this what those icons in the top right hand corner of the screen are for? I'd much prefer tiny icons than wasting a homescreen slot.

You make a good and valid point, but the article mentions that it combines all the alerts PLUS upcoming calendar appointments. So if you are one who uses one of the homescreen slots for calendar appointments, this is actually a bonus where apart from calendar entries, a lot more information is getting displayed.

Ewan, mistake in your article.

It does not list upcoming calendar events, but 'missed' ones. I dont see any use for missed calendar events notifications. Wish it was upcoming calendar events.

RollerSMB, your points stands.
