For Showing the capabilities of it's product, some apps are available on the developers website. While most are more demos than real apps, the Solitaire application is better than Nokias native Solitaire Demo app. Get it from here.


The best email client for Symbian - Profimail - has now been adopted to make use of S60 5th Ed. and the big touch screen of 5800. Now the preview functionality, showing the email content below the list of the mail subjects, makes sense for me. Also, it has some touch buttons at the bottom to replace the missing hardware keys. Profimail is available at Lonely Cat games.

Get it from Nokia Labs.
