Using Fring on Xseries.

(viewed 13114 times)
X-series handsets come with native MSN messenger and Skype clients. The Skype client does not allow you to make use of any Skype in or out functionality. The MSN messenger client is a bit annoying in that it is full of warning and message screens that inform you of what the client is doing when it's really not necessary after the first time it's told you.

Enter Fring

Fring is a Series 60 application which supports Yahoo messenger, MSN messenger, Google Talk, Skype and SIP numbers. It's also really really nice to use, like; tabbed chats, clearly and unobtrusively prompting you when you have a message, and not being a massive memory hog like the native MSN and Skype Clients.

Because Fring supports Skype out, this application means you can effectively bypass your Operator completely. There are any number of free (GPRS/3G) applications which allow free sms sending too, so to all intents and purposes (Skype out on Fring quite often has a tiny delay, although quality is very high indeed) you could now have a plan from your operator which is *NOTHING BUT DATA*.

This is a situation which has certainly been on the horizon for quite a while, I spoke about this trend at the Telco 2.0 event a little while ago (summary here: Telco 2.0 Summary )and it's really quite astonishing to see it a reality so soon.

Anyone on X-series who hasn't tried Fring I do urge you to try it, particularly if you have Skype out/in.

edit - if anyone would like to test the qaulity of a Skype out call from Fring, get in touch by using the contact button on my moblog and I'll give you a ring.

edit 2 - Oh yeah, it also supports Chat on Skype :D

edit 3 - bugger me if Fring doesnt also let you call people on MSN or Gtalk too. Wow.

TV on the phone

I find it quite useful (since I don't have TV at home) to be able to
just leave BBC News 24 streaming while working sometimes. Doesn't mean I
need a TV license does it?

Snapped this one near Buckingham Palace on Sunday morning after breakfast with friends. This guy took a week to run the London Marathon as a protest against the fast pace of life and to raise money for charity. I chatted to him as he ambled along and he seemed really happy and relaxed. Doing it for a good cause too - http://www.leukaemia.org/. Good one. - Darren
