Contacts on Ovi - Fresh off the blog at the Nokia Beta Labs, we bring you news that Nokia Chat has been renamed to Contacts on Ovi, complete with a host of improvements, bug fixes, and new features. First up, they’ve finally added support for S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2 devices, such as the N78, N96, and N79. They’ve also added a Java client, so that your non-Nokia carrying pals can play along, as well! Great move, Nokia.
The whole service is still based on your Nokia Account, and uses XMPP for cross-compatibility. It’s simple to add your Gtalk friends to the mix, and you can login to Contacts on Ovi from numerous desktop applications, such as Digsby (that’s what I use).Note that if you already have Nokia Chat installed on your phone, you’ll want to be sure and uninstall it before you try to install this new client.
