  1. Link please!
    And does this mean its built for a specific phone or is downloadable by all Symbian 3 users?

  2. @Keriako, i have provided Link on the article. Kindly note that the app is compatible Nokia Smartphones and it depends on your Nokia model and as Ovi store states, you are required to test the app from the site for its compatibility.

    • I just tried it on Nokia N8 and its not compatible to Nokia N8. How this is possible for an app to be compatible with E7 and not on N8 i dont get. Maybe they have made restrictions to type of phone

      • I think it is a matter of getting exclusive content for the E7, at least during this launch season.
        According to the ovi blog (url) (url)

        “The CNN App for Nokia is currently exclusive for use on the Nokia E7, and is free to download from Ovi Store (excluding Japan). According to the announcement made by CNN today, the app will be available in the coming weeks for the Nokia N8, Nokia C7 and Nokia C6-01, with wider availability to be announced later.”

        It is a Qt app, thus it should be compatible with all Symbia^3 smartphones, once they stop this nonsense of content exclusivity.
