Opera Mobile 10.1 for Symbian is available and faster than ever

Opera Mobile 10.1 for Symbian has become available yesterday. After a period of public beta testing, the Norwegian browser has become faster than ever -- and is, right now, possibly the fastest browser available for Symbian. Making its debut in the stable 10.1 version is a just-in-time compiler for Opera's Carakan JavaScript engine, that makes its JavaScript rendering a whopping nine times...

Tap2It brings Googlesque Instant Search to Symbian

Google has begun making Instant Search available to iOS and Android devices but other mobile platforms have yet to receive any support for the new search-as-you-type feature. One of the platforms that Google has ignored is the biggest mobile OS of them all: Symbian. But there is a solution. Tap2It is a free search app that uses Google search APIs and works on new Symbian devices such as the...

Opera Mini 5.1 beta for S60 brings copy and paste, native email, and speed

This week, Opera let loose a new beta of their latest and greatest proxy-based browser for S60-powered smartphones. Essentially giving any Nokia S60 phone a fast and fairly decent browsing experience, Opera Mini 5.1 beta now supports the platform's native copy and paste feature, and it can call up the native email client. This doesn't sound like a lot, but in usability stakes, the ability to copy...

Adobe Flash Player 10.1 will land on Windows Phone 7 and BlackBerry

Adobe has just announced that it will unleash Flash Player 10.1 on a whole list of mobile operating systems, from Windows Phone 7, BlackBerry and WebOS 2.0 on down to the Symbian, MeeGo and LiMo platforms. Timelines are hazy for Flash Player's arrival on these platforms (the press release just says they're "expected" to support Flash Player 10.1) but the WebOS 2.0 version has already started...

Intel working on ARM-to-x86 tool to bring iOS apps to Atom-powered MeeGo phones

In an interview with the news service IDG, Intel's vice president of Software and Services says that the company is developing a tool to port iPhone applications to Intel's Atom-powered MeeGo smartphones. Without getting into too much detail, the processors used by Apple's devices (and almost every phone on the market) are not compatible with Intel's Atom processor. This tool would, in theory,...

Mozilla bringing Firefox Home to BlackBerry, Symbian, and Facebook and Twitter access

Mozilla has just pushed out an epic blog post that details the future of Firefox Home, mainly stating that it's heading to both the BlackBerry and Symbian mobile phone platforms in the coming months. If you've not heard of Firefox Home, watch the video after the break for a short intro. Other than two new platforms, the blog post mentions that Facebook and Twitter integration, Panorama...

Meego flashed to Nexus One, Dell Streak, HTC Desire

Got an HTC Desire, Nexus One, or Dell Streak burning a hole in your pocket? Wish there was something you could run on it besides Android? Probably not, but for those of you out there who just can't stand running stock anything on your devices, why not take the plunge and install Meego? Anybody else think that the Dell Streak pictured on the Meego Wiki page could use a serious screen...

Meego in-vehicle infotainment remix now available for download

Meego -- the Linux effort headed up by Intel and Nokia -- recently scored a fairly major win, with GENIVI selecting it as the platform of choice for in-vehicle infotainment. In case you're not familiar with GENIVI, it's a consortium comprised of several high-profile companies including GM, BMW, Hyundai, Intel, Nokia, NVidia, ARM, Freescale, and many others. On GENIVI's about page, they speak...

Symbian wins the Silverlight race, brings rich media to Nokia phones

While there's much ado about Flash support (or lack thereof) on the iPhone and Android, Silverlight hasn't exactly been at the forefront of mobile software discussions in a while. Don't sell Microsoft short, though: Silverlight for Symbian has arrived, and it's the first version of SIlverlight on any mobile platform. The Microsoft rich media player -- not as ubiquitous as Flash, but still useful...

Meego's sexy smartphone UI goes on display

Curious about what the upcoming Meego OS will look like on a smartphone? Well, wonder no more! A handful of images have been posted on the official website for all to see. Above are the home screen, launcher, and task switcher interface (from left to right). I can't help but think that Meego's UI has taken cues from its current mobile OS rivals -- which isn't really a surprise since Intel and...

Silverlight beta to be on Symbian next week?

It appears that Microsoft's partnership with Nokia to port Silverlight to Symbian will soon bear fruit. Microsoft posted the developer tools and the beta version of the code on March 11th but then quickly pulled them down again. Mary Jo Foley thinks it may launch at Mix next week. Mobile may be the killer app to get Silverlight in more users hands. With Silverlight being heavily...

After dissing WinMo, Skype snuggles up to Symbian

While the Skype experience on Windows Mobile handsets was determined to be "unsatisfactory," phones running Nokia's SymbianOS (more than 200 million worldwide) now have access to the immensely popular VOIP app. In an official blog posting, Skype's Peter Parks reports that the app is now available for download in Nokia's Ovi store and directly from Skype via this link. The app supports voice...

PocketGear buys Handango, consolidates the mobile app store space

Before Apple, Google, Nokia, BlackBerry, and Microsoft offered on-device app stores for mobile phones and PDAs, there were web-based stores including PocketGear, Handango, and MobiHand. These stores are still alive and kicking, and allow you to browse, purchase, and download applications for pretty much any mobile platform except the iPhone -- including Android, Symbian, Windows Mobile, Palm,...

S^3 smartphone OS gets the video preview treatment

With all the hubbub over Windows Phone 7 Series at Mobile World Congress this week, you'd think it was the only upcoming mobile OS previewed at the event. And you'd be wrong for thinking that, because the folks at Symbian gave us the first look at the upcoming Symbian S^3 platform as well. Symbian S^3 will be the first version of the platform to be fully open source. Any handset maker will be...

SPB Mobile Shell 5.0 now available for Android, Symbian, Windows Mobile

Mobile software maker SPB is launching SPB Shell 5.0. Like previous versions, SPB Shell basically replaces your phone's default user interface with a customizable "shell."

SPB Shell 5.0 also has a new 3D engine, support for 3D widgets, and 3D applications...
