Nokia Internet Radio now optimised for Symbian^3

Published by at

You may remember our spot on getting Internet Radio working on Symbian^3 phones? We concluded that the S60 5th Edition version of Nokia Internet Radio worked but didn't get on well with the multitasking in Symbian^3? Thankfully, Nokia has listened (no pun intended!) and has produced a new, Symbian^3-optimised version of Internet Radio, now available in the Ovi Store for all the Symbian^3 phones. Some screenshots below.

I tested this on the Nokia N8 and, while streaming music, had no problems opening and closing other applications, or even accessing email. For all the ridicule heaped on Nokia for delays to its browser (etc), credit has to be given for applications like this that really fill in the gaps and help cement the Symbian^3 phones' reputation at being great for media.
