TweetS60 Twitter Client – An Exclusive Review

Until recently, there was no native client for Twitter on Symbian S60. And then Gravity came, Twittix followed it soon and now the market is abuzz with a lot of Symbian twitter clients in the pipeline.

TweetS60 is another native symbian S60 client for twitter from RavenSoft which is currently in private beta and releasing very soon.

But the big news about this client is that, the developers at Ravensoft are also working towards a free version of this client, which is a simply an amazing news for all twitter addicts like me 🙂

I was lucky to be a part of the Private Beta of the client held very recently. So Here I am, with a first hand review of TweetS60 Twitter Client.


The UI is pretty good, I especially loved the colors they have used in all the tabs. It has dedicated tabs for your main twitter timeline, @replies, Direct Messages’s, Your Favorites and Your Messages. You can do all the basic functions like Tweeting, Reply, Retweet, Direct Message, Follow, Unfollow People from the Options menu on the application.

Turn your S60 Phone into an iPhone with Mmmooo’s MyPhone

MyPhone is an application shell which can turn the UI of your S60 phone into an iPhone UI. The application has 2 different versions, one for the 3rd Gen Phone like E71, N73, N81 etc and another for 5th Gen Phones like 5800XM and Nokia N97.

The 5th Gen Edition of MyPhone is basically a flash based application with an iPhone kinda UI. But it looks quite impressive with a “Slide to unlock” feature, a Bottom Dock containing shortcuts for “Messages”, “Calls” and “Contacts” and many other shortcuts on the Home Screen as in an iPhone. You can also change to various other homescreens just by sliding forward/backwards on the UI. And if you want to customize the icons, you just have to long press on the icon you want to replace and touch on another icon with which you want to replace it with.

Nokia E75 vs E71, Picture Gallery

Well, you have seen the Nokia E75 in all its glory, but how does it compare to everyone’s favorite Eseries device? The Nokia E71 can be considered as the E75’s big brother, it’s the device that brought QWERTY to the masses, as well as great build quality, and a multitude of features in a slim form factor.

The E75 carries the same design language, with metallic accents, but features a narrower size that makes it easier to hold it in one hand, especially when you’re making calls. It is also thicker which allows it to have the QWERTY slider form factor. Here are the comparison images, for your viewing pleasure (as always, click on the thumbnails for the full 12MP photos).

The front of both devices shows their difference: the E71 looks like a powerful messaging device, whereas the E75 has a regular mobile phone look. This could be considered as a positive or a negative aspect for the E75, depending on what you look for exactly in a mobile. Continue reading “Nokia E75 vs E71, Picture Gallery”

Everyone is looking at the newer Nseries and Eseries. “Oh the E66, the E71, the N85, the N96!” But what about the dated devices? Some of them are just one year old, others more than 2 years.
