Angry Birds Rio for Symbian lands in Nokia's Ovi Store

Angry Birds Rio, the latest installment in the bird-slinging series from Rovio Mobile, is now available in Nokia's Ovi Store, ready to fly to your Symbian device. Angry Birds Rio has so far been spotted on iOS, Android, and webOS. As with the versions for all the other platforms, Angry Birds Rio for Symbian has...

Mobile torrenting: how to manage and stream downloads from your phone

While exciting progress is being made in the realm of high-speed mobile data, it will be a long time indeed before wireless operators can catch up with wired bandwidth and ubiquity. For the time being, mass data transfer will be one of the few things that will stay within the realm of home and office computing, on DSL and Cable connections. Still, just because you run your BitTorrent client on...

PayPal app for Nokia Symbian smartphones now available

PayPal has (very) quietly released an application for Nokia Symbian smartphones, which is now available to download from Nokia's Ovi Store. It only seems to be downloadable if you're in the U.S. or U.K. at the moment, but support for more countries is probably on its way -- after all, the Ovi Store is perhaps the most global of all smartphone app stores. The PayPal app for Symbian is free,...

Angry Birds will celebrate St. Patrick's Day with some green levels

In the next few days, the awesomely adventurous, angry, avians will find themselves flying through the lush, emerald greens of St. Patrick's Day-inspired levels. The new levels are expected to be a free upgrade to the free Angry Birds Seasons game, which is available on Android, iOS, Symbian and WebOS. St. Patrick, if you're not an any-excuse-for-a-party American, is the patron saint of...

Nokia Bubbles combines lock screen and shortcuts for Symbian phones

Nokia Bubbles is an experimental new way to unlock your Symbian phone and quickly perform common actions at the same time. When a phone with Bubbles is in sleep mode, you can hit the "apps" key to bring up a cluster of floating bubbles that serve as shortcuts for actions like opening an app or returning a recent call. When you drag a bubble to the lock icon in the center of the screen, your phone...

A brief glimpse of Nokia's popularity outside the Western world

It's easy to forget just how different the customs of other nations are. While Americans carry dogs around in handbags, Koreans eat them. In England, we gurn; and in Spain, they throw tomatoes. We're a world of completely disparate customs -- yet somehow we can't fathom that Nokia and the Symbian OS could be ahead of Apple and Google in the smartphone market. It's really quite crazy. It's like...

Nokia kills off Comes With Music in all but 6 countries

Nokia's experiment with the OVI Unlimited Music service -- which the company branded as "Comes With Music" on many of its handsets -- is winding down. A Nokia spokesperson has stated that the service just hasn't gained enough traction to keep it going. Competition from other services -- like Spotify and iTunes -- ultimately proved to be too much in certain markets. Unlimited Music will still be...

Angry Birds for Symbian gets two new birds and two new worlds

Angry Birds for Nokia's Symbian smartphones has been updated to version 1.4.2 (the previous one being 1.2.1, for those keeping track). This is the 'normal' version of the game, not the holiday-themed Angry Birds Seasons, mind. The update brings two new worlds, one golden egg world, and two new birds: Boomerang and the Steroid Bird. There's also a new splash screen, and the main dashboard theme...

Angry Birds Seasons for Symbian available now in Nokia's Ovi Store

Angry Birds Seasons has now become available in Nokia's Ovi Store. Angry Birds Seasons is Rovio's holiday-themed version of the insanely popular mobile game, and it has already been out for iOS and Android for a while. And starting today, it also brings its 25 new levels to devices powered by the new Symbian (formerly known as Symbian^3), such as the Nokia N8, C7, and C6-01. Like the Android...

YouTube app for Symbian now plays higher quality video and supports new devices

The official, Google-made YouTube app for Symbian has received an update that takes it to version 2.4.10 and brings a few notable improvements compared to previous iterations. First off, devices running the new Symbian OS are finally supported -- meaning that you can run this app on a Nokia N8, C7, C6-01, or even E7 when that becomes available. Also in are higher quality videos, where the...

Skype for Nokia N8, C7, C6-01 and E7 now available

Skype has released a new version of its mobile client for Symbian devices, which features improved call quality and support for smartphones running the new Symbian (formerly known as Symbian^3), such as the Nokia N8, C7, C6-01 and the soon-to-be-released Nokia E7. The new Skype client includes SILK, Skype's high quality audio codec, to make sure that calls sound great even if you're on a...

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...

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...
