SonyEricsson now Sony Mobile Comunication – Official

Its been a while but its official now. SONY spent €1.05 billion on some 50% shares of  Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson.

It really doesn’t matter to us. What we need to know is no more SONYERICSSON its SONY from now on, so don’t confuse yourself when you see SONY mobile devices on shelves with cheapo chinese clones.

Recently released Xperia S trademarked SONY and indicated the change of winds to come. But current SonyEricsson bearing phones are gonna be sold parallel to the newer Sony range smart phones.

SonyEricsson partnership brought us bold & young designs; perfect for teens and creative personalities. Now will Sony change directions and shoot off-target or revolutionize the mobile platform?

Nimbuzz v3.3 – Symbian UPDATE

One of the first things I’m sure you will notice is the beautifully redesigned Home Screen. We made the icons bigger and rearranged them in grid view so you can access the most important functions with a single touch. Even more exciting is that we added three new icons to the list: Recent Chats, N-World and Groupchat ;) .

Here is the complete overview of Nimbuzz 3.3 for Nokia Symbian phones:

  • Redesigned Home Screen for fast access to your favorite features
  • Three new icons added: Recent Chats, N-World and Groupchat
  • Block contacts that annoy you
  • New “Notifiable” icon – the green half moon
  • Change your password from the inside the app
  • 30% faster login

The icon with a half green moon stands for Notifiable and it will appear only next to your Nimbuzz contacts that closed the Nimbuzz app but can still receive push (on the iPhone and Android)  or  Ping notifications (on the Java and Symbian phones).

So when you see this icon remember that we will push your messages to your friend but it might take a while for them to see it since their app is closed.

Symbian Carla and Donna – Next For Nokia Phones?

At the Developer Day in Mexico, Nokia shed some light on the next two Symbian versions – Carla and Donna plus further information on the Symbian Belle update rollout.

Symbian Carla is intended for smartphones with a 1GHz processor or higher and will be released in late 2012 or early 2013. It is going to offer a new web browser, new widgets, lots of new NFC capabilities and Dolby Surround audio enhancement. The processor minimum requirement means all the Symbian^3 and Symbian Anna handsets (N8, C6-01, C7, E7, E6, X7-00) are not going to get this version

Symbian Donna will be exclusive to dual-core processors, but at the current release intervals, most probably we won’t see it before the end of 2013 or the early 2014. We wonder how many cores the mobile processors will offer by then, but now we know Nokia’s Symbian smartphones three years from now will have two cores. Well, this is just not right, but Nokia has always been good at optimizing the Symbian OS for far less capable hardware as the competition is using.

As far as the current Symbian Belle is concerned – Nokia X7-00, E6 and 500 are going to get the update until the end of this year, while the Symbian^3 (already updated to Anna) devices will receive it in Q1 2012. It seems Belle will be the last update for the Symbian^3 and Anna generation.

Nokia plans to abandon Symbian in 2016, so we guess there won’t be much left to see after the E(ve?) version. But the platform has at least four years to live, the new handsets and Symbian versions all have warm reception, so who knows how the things will turn out in the future.
