Skyfire browser is still in it’s very early beta for S60 3rd Edition smartphones. At the moment, it is available for closed beta testing ONLY for US residents. In this write-up, I just want to share my own experience using this new browser. I will use my own words to explain my thoughts about it and you can agree or disagree with me. Are you ready? Let’s go!

System SEVEN is a push email application that is easy to use and provides alternatives for those who want to use personal email on their mobile devices. What makes it interesting is the easy setup process and the current beta has a few preloaded email settings, to be used with popular free email system like GMail, Yahoo! Mail and Hotmail. There’s also option to use your own domain POP or IMAP server and it also can be used to connect with MS Exchange Server to sync emails, contacts and calendar.

I had the pleasure to try out the Nokia N81 with a few of the recent N-Gage titles and thought I should share my thoughts and overall experience. As you probably know the N81 is designed as an entertainment device focused on gaming and music and comes in two different models, one with 8GB of built-in memory and one with a memory card slot.
Both models have dedicated gaming buttons on the right (as seen on the image above) which light up when you start a game. They are also equipped with the N-Gage application that offers a comfortable way to download and buy trial or full versions games. The N-Gage platform also allows you to connect with your friends, challenging players around the world and participate in community activities in the N-Gage Arena.
In the review that follows, I’ve evaluated the N81’s gaming qualities and five N-Gage game titles. All images were taken using the Nokia N82.

We are quite picky in choosing applications that we think worth the hassle and money to be purchased. After spending some time with an E90 (yep… THE E90!!!), we came into conclusion that the following 10 applications are COMPULSORY for us to use S60 smartphones on a daily basis. And these are all native applications, not Java, not Python… These applications have been tested heavily and the numbers assigned to them are there for a reason. Are you ready? Here we go!!!
The quickest way to launch applications and accessing contacts. A no brainer to use and should be the first application to be installed in all S60 3rd Edition smartphones.
