Skype for Symbian Review
by on March 15, 2010
Skype is no stranger to mobile handsets and already provides an offering for the iPhone as well as its own Skypephone and other handsets from 3.
While the iPhone variant won’t call over a mobile internet connection (though you can instant message over it), Skype for Symbian will allow Nokia smartphone users worldwide to use Skype on the move, over either a Wi-Fi or mobile data connection, whether GPRS, EDGE or 3G.
Like the iPhone app, there’s also integration with the phone’s in-built address book. As well as the usual free Skype-to-Skype calls, you can also save money on calls and texts to foreign handsets as well as share pictures, videos and other files with other Skype users.
As on the desktop, Skype is also a great instant messaging client, though the input can be slow. The application works well, although as with the iPhone app, it can be a little temperamental to connect from time to time.
However, because of the ability to multitask on Symbian, the app is a whole lot more useful than the iPhone equivalent.
