[New] Frodo - Commodore 64 emulator for S60 3rd Edition
Hannu Viitala has been developing Symbian OS ports of Frodo, Commodore 64 emulator, since 2001 or so. This time he has released a S60 3rd Edition version.

Skype for Mobile - beta version
Skype has released a Java client for mobile phones, compatible with S60 and UIQ devices. While the application looks like a "normal" Skype client known from PC or Windows Mobile, it is not a true VoIP solution as it uses the mobile network (rather than the Internet) to make and receive calls. This means that in addition to your Skype credit, you will also be charged by your network operator for a local call. Call quality is not that great, either, but it's just a beta version so things may get better. To try it yourself, visit

[New] VibrateCall for S60 3rd Edition

The phone will vibrate until the call is answered and it'll stop vibrating when the connection is established. It's safer, as you don't absorb the radiation, and it's easier, especially for drivers.

E90 firmware update - v200.34.72
Nokia has just released a new firmware version for the E90 Communicator. Users report that it's currently available only for selected Product codes (regional versions). The new version (what a huge jump in the version number!) adds Flash Lite 3 support (YouTube video, etc), Quickoffice, Web Runtime (widgets), faster operation and many bug fixes (including the infamous Calendar bug).

Update: The new firmware was most probably a beta version that wasn't meant to go public. It has been removed from the NSU. But even so, it's a good sign that firmware update is coming...

Symbian OS with SQL and LBS
Symbian Limited yesterday announced Symbian SQL and an advanced Location Based Services (LBS) architecture – two new technologies that herald the next generation of mobile computing by offering dramatic enhancements in the vital areas of mass data handling and LBS. Mobile phones featuring Symbian's LBS offering were recently launched in Japan. In Europe, Symbian's LBS architecture will appear in mobile phones later this year. Symbian SQL will be featured in phones shipping in the second half of 2008 and be available to application developers via a download in Q2 2008.

SQLite, an established open source technology widely used in products such as Mozilla's Firefox, has been implemented by Symbian to create Symbian SQL, a robust and highly scalable database management system for Symbian OS. Symbian SQL makes retrieving and sorting terabytes of data and multimedia fast and efficient without compromising performance. Application developers can also take advantage of Symbian SQL by using a standard query language when working with databases on Symbian OS, helping to reduce maintenance costs and application footprints. To support the open source community, Symbian is contributing technology improvements back into the SQLite open source project and is a charter member of the SQLite Consortium launched in December 2007.

Symbian's LBS architecture offers the most extensive LBS-rich solution of any OS, supporting multiple positioning technologies including A-GPS, network-based and Wi-FI to provide fast and accurate location information. Handset manufacturers do not need to invest separately in developing location support, dramatically reducing the time it takes to create GPS-enabled devices. Developers can cost-effectively target their LBS applications across multiple Symbian OS platforms, including S60, UIQ and MOAP, due to the consistent set of APIs offered by Symbian's LBS architecture.
