Nimbuzz Ping Will Not Be Available Till September 1st, 2012

August 22nd, 2012

Hi guys,

Due to recent restrictions on SMS imposed by the Indian Government, Nimbuzz Ping will not be available to use till the 1st of September. Although Nimbuzz Ping is a nifty utility which helps you keep in touch with each other without the need for a smartphone, it has been classified under the A2P promotional SMS category and therefore restricted due to National Security reasons.

We apologize for this and assure you that Nimbuzz Ping will be back up as soon as the restriction is lifted. Till then you can use our web messenger to keep in touch with your friends and family.

Stay Safe. Stay Connected.

Surface May Be Microsoft’s Breakthrough Device

June 27th, 2012

Microsoft unveiled their tablet/Laptop hybrid called Surface two days back. The most interesting part of this launch is the fact that this tablet is completely done by the company itself as compared to their previous partnerships with device manufacturers. It is about time that Microsoft did that. Even though Microsoft’s Windows is the world’s most popular operating system, the company has lagged behind on the tablet and Mobile OS part. Their upcoming launch of Windows 8 might solve that.

Windows 8 is supposed to be a tablet OS in addition to a desktop one and the stylings of the OS show that it is meant mainly for the tablet. Microsoft Surface is an indicator to what is forthcoming in the Windows ecosystem. The company now has all the components required to compete with the likes of Google and Apple.

Woah! Surface sports a cover which doubles up as keyboard! We think that is the most efficient and innovative implementation of a tablet keyboard in the market today. The keyboard is not wireless and has thus no need for charging. There are two versions of the Microsoft Surface. One comes with a Tegra 3 ARM-based processor running Windows 8 RT (for ARM) while the other high end version called Surface Pro will use an Ivy Bridge Core i5 chip.

Specifications:

Screen Size: 10.6 inches
Aspect ratio: 16:9
Resolution: Surface Pro – 1920×1080 | Surface – 1366×768
Display: Full HD display
Covers: A touch cover and a type cover. Both include keyboards and multi-touch functionality.

Availability:

Microsoft did not confirm when it will launch the device nor the pricing but it is expected to launch by the end of this year.
The Surface has been lauded by reviewers and critics for its innovative input methods and hardware specifications. We think it is pretty cool!
With this new type of  keyboard, we hope all those Nimbuzz users who are uncomfortable with typing on tablets will find it easy to communicate with your family, friends and colleagues using the Surface.

Here is a video which shows the Surface in action:

Nimbuzz no longer available for Windows Mobile

June 2nd, 2010

windows-mobile-support

These might not be the best news of today, but we’d like to inform you that as of July 1st Nimbuzz for Windows Mobile phones will no longer be available for download from our website.

If you already have Nimbuzz on your mobile phone we will continue to offer support until the end of 2010, but no new features will be added, which means there won’t be any future update.

The reason for this decision was simple: due to platform limitations the application was not delivering a great mobile experience like on all the other mobile operating systems.

As you might have read in the news Microsoft is also stepping away from this platform and its limitations. At the moment they are fine tuning the windows phone 7 platform , which promises a completely new look and great jump forwards when it comes to usability.

And to answer your next question:  yes, we are looking into the possibility of supporting Windows phone 7 in the future but now we are still waiting for the first devices to surface in order to make that decision.

If you want to continue to use the most up to date Nimbuzz versions on your mobile we remind you that Nimbuzz is also available for: iPhone, Symbian, Android, Java or Blackberry or if your prefer you can use it via PC, Mac or Web.

Thanks for your understanding!
