fring Releases Updates for Symbian and Windows Mobile

The nice folks at fring, one of the coolest VOIP/IM solution for smartphones, contacted me this morning regarding to a couple of software updates for Symbian S60 3rd edition and Windows Mobile phones. They've basically addressed a number of bugs and made some improvement in this release.

fring for Symbian (ver. 3.35) fixed a few bugs including better call quality, enable speakerphone for symbian 9.2 and allows file transfer amongst Skype and Yahoo buddies. For more information, click here.

fring for Windows Mobile (ver. 3.24) adds auto roam between 3G and WiFi along with manual WiFi settings adjustment and 8 language support (including English, French, Spanish, German, Chinese, simplified Chinese, Italian and Russian). It also supports fringME widget for webpage based interaction from your buddies. For more information, click here.

I've tried to update my phone this afternoon but haven't been successful, not sure if their server is being exhausted by all the requests; hopefully I can get this updated shortly to provide some more feedback!

Update: I just finished downloading the latest .SIS file for Symbian 9.2. It detected an older version 3.30 and replaced it with 3.35 successfully. It is much improved over 3.30, with the fring ID auto populated as my number and easily logged me in. Haven't done drastic test over this but am happy with everything so far. Stay tuned!
