In many parts of the world (almost everywhere except the USA), Nokia is a trusted brand for mobile phones. Originally, Nokia phones were the easiest to use, had the best software and easy to navigate menu system. Some people even today swear by their Nokia phone and are determined to buy another Nokia to replace their old, dated feature phone.
Many of these feature phones are running Symbian s40 or s60 and are actually quite capable. Not as capable as today’s iPhones and Androids of course, and that is where Symbian^3 comes in. Symbian^3 was going to be Nokia’s interim platform for their high end smartphones until they transitioned to the new Meego mobile OS. Of course, now all of this is changed since they announced that they will be transitioning to Microsoft Windows Phone 7 for all of their smartphones.
Unfortunately, we don’t know how the new Nokia-Microsoft partnership will turn out in the end. We suspect it will be successful and sell a lot of phones. The problem is that they don’t expect to really ramp up until sometime in 2012. In the meantime, Nokia has mentioned that they will sell more than 150 million Symbian phones.
For those that don’t have GoAruna yet, it is a cloud file storage service and a powerful file manager for your phone. You can store, manage and share your files, photos and media anytime and from any device. If you change phone brands, no worries, we have you covered. You can always be sure your next phone will be able to access your files because GoAruna has the most complete range of native mobile and tablet apps in the market.
GoAruna for Nokia Symbian^3 is available immediately from the NOKIA OVI store. This version is available in English and Chinese (both Traditional and Simplified).
This version should work with all NOKIA Symbian^3 and above phones. The currently released phones that this version is compatible are the N8, C7, C7 Astound, C6, E6, E7 and X7. More phones may be released later. If you set your phone model correctly in your OVI store profile it should tell you if it is compatible.
