A new improved version of Gizmo Project’s VoIP client for Nokia dual mode (WiFi+cellular) handsets is now available from the Nokia Labs website. It is worth the upgrade, since it has a lot of bug fixes compared to the previous version, which was built for Nokia N80 handset. The new version works nicely on most Nokia S60 devices (with Wi-Fi) including the Nokia N95.

In related news, Gizmo’s desktop client can now connect to AOL’s AIM and MSN instant messaging networks networks. Now if they can get iChat, Jabber and Yahoo working, you could have one single client open instead of two right now: Adium and Gizmo. Interestingly, You could already make free voice calls to people using Yahoo Messenger and Windows Live IM networks, in addition to those who are using Jabber, Google Talk and Gizmo Project.

  1. Nokia need to keep the innovation up and install easy. I think these beta project will keep phone geeks happy. Projects like this and their excellent third party software is their main defense against an iPhone onslaught.

    I’m also enjoying using The Filter software for my N95 that builds instant playlists on the phone.

    What about the iPhone? Will there be VoIP for that?

  3. Gizmo speaks the Jabber protocol already and has since day one, which means it should work (IM-wise) with iChat and anything else that is Jabber-based.

  4. I am not sure why it isn’t working right now – maybe something odd going on here – i will try it again

    yes is a beta project!

  6. PhoneBoy is right, Gizmo has been doing Jabber since day one, see http://imfederation.com/ for details. They all about open standards, after all!
