3 is a mobile carrier in the UK that is very special. They offer Skype, sling box, and a few other applications exclusively for their mobiles.
The internet is beautiful, someone copied these applications off their phone and shared them with the rest of us! Here is all the information I have:
X-series (3 UK) applications for Symbian OS9.1 (not just N73)
Skype, Mobilcast, SlingPlayerMobile, Yahoo GO!, 3MobileMail
Is this illegal … maybe, I’ll take them down if asked. Until then however enjoy! I warn you: some of these applications may not work properly on your device. I have a Nokia E61 running the latest firmware and I couldn’t get anything to work properly. However I did manage a few screenshots 😉
Here they all are, installed:
Skype crashes after I hit continue, but seeing this brought a tear to my eye:
Slingbox looks horribly disfigured, and I mean horribly, here is the about screen:
3 Mobile Mail needs to be activated with a 3 account which … I don’t have:
Last we have Yahoo GO! Which doesn’t want to GO on my E61:
I couldn’t get Mobilecast to install so no screenshots on that one.
For those of you brave enough to try these application out, and I remind you most of them have been designed for a Nokia N73, then grab the RAR file! (enter in the number they show you, hit submit, wait 30 seconds, and you’re golden! I would host the file myself but I have bandwidth limits I need to maintain)
I can’t thank Darla enough for telling me about this release, you little pirate you, anyway she tells me she is going to run by all these applications on her Nokia N73 and post a review so keep an eye out on her blog. As for me, better luck next time I guess.
