Here is a collection of some of the best Symbian blogs, news sources and official websites the Internet has to offer.
- Symbian Guru
One of the better blogs about Symbian: with reviews, as well as news and tips and tricks.
- Symbian Freak
A very extensive Symbian resource, with a news blog and a forum. This site is almost like a light, Symbian version of XDA-Developers at times.
- All About Symbian
This page is aptly titled, it’s all about Symbian! A large, professional website and one of the most reliable Symbian sources.
- The Symbian Blog
The title says it all. “All things Symbian and then some more!” is their slogan.
News, reviews, tutorials and more.
- The Nokia Blog
Needs no description.
Well, you guessed right! Another blog about Symbian.
Nokia’s blog about Symbian applications, with focus on software in the OVI Store.
- Nokia Beta Labs
If you have a Nokia device, this page is a must. New applications are released as betas for free. Not much available for Symbian S60 5th Edition at the moment though, but hopefully that will change soon.
- N-Gage Home page
N-Gage is Nokia’s software gaming platform.
- All About N-Gage
Sister site of All About Symbian, with sole focus on N-Gage.
- Nokia Image Exchange
An experimental imaging service for Nokia devices, for sharing and viewing pictures.
- Nokia Sports Tracker
This is one of the larger projects from the Nokia Beta Labs. In short, it’s a GPS-based tool for tracking your sports activities, with information such as distance, speed, time and routes being stored in a training diary. Really worth checking out!
This is Nokia’s “umbrella concept” Internet services (sync, store, maps, mail, N-Gage, files etc)
- Nokia Indoor Positioning
This upcoming system from the Nokia Research Center will eventually allow you to navigate indorrs using buildings WLAN infrastructure to triangulate your position.
- Nokia Easy Meet
A web-based mobile collaboration service which lets you participate in meetings, and it’s all about sharing content synchronously in real-time.
- Nokia Point & Find
I’m looking forward to this service evolving and being available everywhere: you just point your phone’s camera at real world objects, and you get related information from the Internet. You can also scan a barcode with the camera to get the latest product information, reviews and where to find the lowest prices online.
- Here & Now
A location-aware shortcut to services, like weather forecasts and events listings.
- Nokia Messanging
An email application which lets you view up to 10 different addresses from different services (Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail etc) all on once place.
- Nokia Friend View
Experimental location-based micro-blogging service, which lets you see the location of nearby friends.
- Mobile Codes
Create codes that can hold the information of your choice, which then can be scanned and viewed with camera phones.
- S60 Home
The official site for Symbian S60.
- Nokia Conversations
Nokia’s own page about their phones, services and Symbian in general.
- MOSH by Nokia
A site with free, user added content that however is about to get shut down in favour of OVI.
- NSeries Workshop
This website is rarely updated, but its focus is on Nokia’s NSeries.
- Symbian Foundation
The Symbian Foundation website.
- Great Pockets by Henry Needle & Sons
Nokia has a series of slightly bizarre marketing campaigns that I choose to file under the WTF? category. They obviously have put quite a lot of money and effort into them, but I think most of the campaigns have passed unnoticed. This is an advertisement for the Nokia N95.
- The Unloader
Another example of the above-mentioned. What the frack they were thinking with this campaign beats me. What is it an advertisement for, anyway?
- Face the Task
A rather lavish ad site for the Nokia N96.
- Legends Telegraph
Legends Telegraph is quite unusual and slightly mysterious. About Nokia’s technology research.
- Symbian OS Article at Wikipedia
