I still remember Microsoft’s motto of welcoming folks to the Social with their Zune, but that portable media player failed to take off in a big way, and did not even make a dent in Apple’s formidable armor in this area. Well, Nokia’s attempt at bringing the social elements around you to a phone is admirable, with the Symbian app known as Nokia Social being given a bump to hit version 1.5. This most recent update would allow you to create and view updates in a simpler manner than ever before. Additional widgets would catch your eyes from from the get go, where you can always harness the additional screen real-estate courtesy of the Nokia Belle update. Sporting a quartet of different widgets to choose from, Social 1.5 will let you see more or less of your networks on the homescreen itself. It really depends on how you want to utilize these widgets, so go nuts with Nokia Social 1.5! This will be a free download from Nokia Store, so it would not hurt to give it a spin.
