Nokia PC Phone Beta. Control your phone via a browser.

http://www.nokia.com/betalabs/pcphone

This is a browser based application (works in IE and Firefox) which allows you to place calls, sms / txt, update contacts etc from within the browser via a phone connected (bluetooth/wifi/cable) to your PC.

Whilst you can already do most of this if you have the NOKIA PC suite installed, this is still quite a handy. The big advantage is being able to type using your PC keyboard and update your phone / send lengthy text messages.

You can also initiate a call, but make sure your phone is handy – it just does the dialling for you – not conduct the conversation :)

The app is supposed to control and show incoming calls too, but unfortunately I couldn’t get this feature to work. In theory this would be a useful visual alert for the times you forget to switch your phone out of silent/meeting mode. (I’m always doing that).

Bottom line: Good for doing bulk updates of your contacts, handy for typing long txts.
