Nokia Messaging for Social Networks Beta 2 launches with Twitter support
I have been using the Nokia Email client since it was in early beta mode and prefer it over the lame default Nokia client loaded on devices. There has been some branding confusion about the different Nokia Messaging clients, even with someone experienced with Nokia devices like me, and after a conference call last week I finally have it straightened out and understand what is going on. I will make a post soon that tries to make it clear for all of you too and I highly recommend you check out the messaging.nokia.com site where you will clearly see there is Nokia Messaging for Email, Nokia Messaging for IM, and Nokia Messaging for Social Networks. The Nokia Messaging for Social Networks Beta 1 recently came out and just today Beta 2 launched with support for both Facebook and Twitter.
Check out this video from Davis Fields that gives you a nice overview of the updated service and client.
I played with the client a bit this past weekend on the Nokia N97 mini and it is quite good. It won’t replace Gravity for Twitter on my device, but it is good to see an integrated single client that has features meeting a large majority of user’s needs. Also, it is available for FREE.
The Nokia Messaging for Social Networks Beta 2 release support the Nokia N97, N97 mini, and Nokia 5800 devices (all 5th Edition). With the Facebook part of the client you can upload pictures and videos to Facebook, view upcoming events and even have them imported to your calendar (this is a very cool feature), and click to call/SMS/email your Facebook friends. With the Twitter part you can view and reply to Tweets and update your status on Twitter.
I have been busy with Smartphone Round Robin content, but will try to get you a more detailed hands-on with this latest beta client soon.
