Realtime Review of Nimbuzz

Nimbuzz: is it buzz worthy?

Nimbuzz

Taking a look at Informationweek.com for the latest releases, I came across this little article. The piece talks about a beta program, Nimbuzz!, in the works to include VoIP services, IMing, Texting (SMS) and Chat all on a mobile phone.

What are even better are the investors of the program: “The company has received several million dollars in backing from venture capitalists, including $10 million from Mangrove Capital Partners, which was the original backer of Skype.”

Want even better news about this? Well, “With this new release, we now also have a genuine free mobile VoIP solution that works on more than 90 handsets including Nokia (NYSE: NOK), Samsung, and LG.”

One more thing about it: And I’m sure you will love this….ITS FREE!

So at this very moment I am downloading it, going to test it and will reply soon with a post on my findings.

Update:

I have tested this program out on my Facebook, MySpace and cell phone, and I have to say I am completely impressed. It is very easy installing the software, just as easy to log into it on your cell phone, and I have not noticed any bugs or issues as of yet.

One thing I did notice is the wide range of programs it will integrate with. Here are some just to name a few: Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn, Xing, Blogger, LiveJournal, Flicker, Ebay, Outlook, and many many more.

So I urge you to take a look and let me know what you think. It took about 30 minutes of my time to plug the applet into my personal areas, and it’s not difficult to figure out. If you decide to test it out I would be very interested in your thoughts good or bad.

Later!

  • Hi Guys! I just purchased a Nokia E71 and using it with Nimbuzz. So far, this is the only VOIP software that works on my E71. Skype do not have software support for this Nokia E71 yet. I do not bother to try Fring.

    Any way, I made and received Skype call (yes, after launching Nimuzz on my Nokia E71). It work flawlessly with my home WiFi. This is something to shout about to the World! Great job, Nimbuzz!

    Cheers!

  • I have been using from more than 2 years. First in my s60v3 and now in my android. Another great thing is that you can do google and yahoo call from nimbuzz too, without need of any seperate yahoo messenger or gtalk client. The other contact need not to have nimbuzz installed.
