Yahoo! oneSearch for S60Yahoo! oneSearch for S60Yahoo! just like Google has entered the mobile search race with the new oneSearch for Symbian S60 devices. If you happen to own some of the newly supported devices for which Yahoo! oneSearch is available you can download and try this application on you own.

One of the most noticable things about the Yahoo! oneSearch is the Search Assist, something that can not be found in the Google's application. The suggestion of keywords and possible search patterns the Yahoo! oneSearch is one step before Google's mobile search.

Unfortunately Yahoo's mobile search application is not available for the whole range of Symbian S60 devices, so if you own a Symbian S60 powered Nokia mobile phone you will have to go to the site and check if your phone is on the supported list.

We can only hope that the rival applications will make the progress much faster and soon all S60 devices will be supported. As for the alternatives the Y! oneSearch seems to take the lead for now.

Skype has released Skype for mobile supporting Symbian S60 3rd edition Nokia mobile phones. Few months ago it was available only for Pocket PC and now finally for the S60 platform.

The only thing was that the application took a while to update the status of all my 417 contacts (I assume you don't have this much people on your contact list) but when connected through a Wi-Fi connection everything seemed to work just fine.

To install Skype for mobile go to the download page and fill the form provided. If you are S60 user with 240x320 display resolution download the Nokia N95 file it works on all S60 3rd edition mobile phone. For larger displays download the Nokia N80 file.
