Nokia PC Suite is a software from Nokia that allows Nokia phones or devices to connect with a computer running the Microsoft Windows OS. The Latest version is version 7.1. Nokia PC Suite 7.1 will be replaced by the latest PC Suite from Nokia called the Nokia Suite (formerly called Nokia Ovi), because of its ability to interface Nokia mobile phones to other computer platforms, not just the PC. If you own a Nokia phone, then you should seriously consider downloading the Nokia PC Suite or Nokia Ovi Suite for your device. The mobile phone can be connected to the PC using Bluetooth, Infrared, or Bluetooth.
Nokia PC Suite is available on CD, but the easiest way of getting the latest virus-free version is to download directly from the Nokia website. Once download is complete, open the downloaded file to initiate the installation. Once Nokia PC Suite installation is complete, you can start communication between your mobile phone and your PC. One of the most popular feature of the Nokia PC Suite is enabling you to use your Nokia phone as an internet modem for connecting your PC to the internet. Another is the ability of backing up your phones content as well as syncing your contact, calendar, etc. Other features of the Nokia PC Suite include managing files, application installation, image storage, video transfer, etc.

Nokia PC Suite or Nokia Suite
Nokia Suite is ideal as it supports all latest features from Nokia. However, you need to think twice before going for the Nokia Suite. If you are using an older Nokia phone, it may not be supported by the Nokia Suite. In such a situation, Nokia PC Suite will be ideal. Another reason why the Nokia PC Suite may be favoured is that it is light about 40MB compared to 87MB for the latest version of the Nokia Suite (V3.3). This may be important if you are downloading online from a slow network as is the case in most parts of Nigeria.
System requirement could also be a reason for installing the Nokia PC Suite over the more recent Nokia Suite. Nokia Suite 3.3 requires a Pentium 4 computer with at least 1GHz processing power and 1GB RAM. If your system cannot support this, you should download the Nokia PC Suite instead.
