A friend of mine has bought a new Nokia Express Music 5800, yesterday evening
He wanted to use skype on his nokia so we played a bit together in installing an
app that provides skype on that mobile phone. There are two applications which run
on the phone.1. Skype Lite downloaded from SkypeÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½s mobile phone version download page
However, the selected version was pretty old it was for Nokia 7370.
This solution worked out, unfortunately there was no skype voice calls on it, niether video calls.
2. We tested Fring For convenience reasons I did a mirror of the NokiaÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½s ExpressMusic 5800, which by the way runs on top of Symbian OS ver. 9.4.Here is a link to the Fring for Nokia ExpressMusic 5800
We tested also the fringÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½s skype protocol abilities, trying out both video and audio calls which prooved to work okay.
Nevertheless, during playing with the fring the program crashed once and required to be rebooted to return to proper operation mode.
Credits for this post go to Nomen who did most of the work on testing fring on his phone.
In the mean time tonight, a new year is approaching. LetÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½s all hope this year will prove to be peaceful, fruitful and
full of grace for every inhabitant on earth.
In regard to the new year approaching I Wish you a Really, Really Happy and Peaceful New Year!
