Pointless to pay for a IM client.....When u have apps like Nimbuzz(my favorite!), ebuddy, fring, etc....

  • ady

is there any transitions effect on the e75, like the n79?

  • nowave7

What exactly do they mean, when they say desktop-like experience?

  • nowave7

Don't forget about Nimbuzz, great app! And absolutely free!

  • mmm

I use Palringo, seams to be the best one for me. Really beats the battery up though..

Fring is better. It even has SIP support and call via MSN. If you are not into fring the Nimbuzz has a better interface and all is free!!!

Fring has all this and is free!

All notifications are real time. And by your post; I can tell you've never used a Nokia Smartphone before. Blackberry may not handle multitasking easily without killing your battery, but I've used multiple apps on my N97 without a significant hit on my battery life.

I accidentally left my wifi on all day (turned it on in the morning to check weather, then left it on my table until after dinner), and the battery charge didnt move an inch. 5800 on wifi isnt rated too long, its what, 5 hrs max of continuous usage? the thing had the wifi connection available for at least 7 hrs, battery didnt move, and when i resumed surfing on it, the next page loaded as fast as the browser could render it.

s60 doesnt need push notification, it can handle online connections QUITE well while draining minimal power.

is it actually "push" notification or just background notification meaning the app/phone itself should always be connected to the internet. if the latter, then it will drain the battery...unlike blackberry...

  • Paul

Needs MSN and AIM support and then I'll use..hopefully soon and hopefully e55 ships with it.

  • Louie

Nokia, please release this kind of app
to all your symbians phones...
especially of course... for "N" and "E" series.
