Nokia Chat – IM Client Released For Nokia Handsets
The big Finnish giant, Nokia, has developed its own Instant Messaging client for Nokia phones, named as Nokia Chat, and aims to offer a PC-like instant messaging experience on lots of its handsets.
According to Nokia, Chat is not just “another IM client”. Besides allowing you to easily chat with your friends from your mobile phone, the new application also comes with Nokia Maps integration. This way you can see your friends’ location as well as share and update your own location status.

Currently, it’s in beta stage so you will have to download and install it manually in your phone through Nokia Beta Labs. Later on when it comes out of beta, Nokia Chat will come pre-installed in all compatible new Nokia handsets.
You will need to have a wireless data plan from your mobile operator and a Nokia account to use Nokia Chat. It was tested and works perfectly with the following Nokia handsets: N95, N95 8GB, N82, N81, N81 8GB, E51, E66, E71, 6110 Navigator, 6290 and 6120 Classic, E90 Communicator, 5700 XpressMusic, 6121 Classic and 6124 Classic.
You can download Nokia Chat for free through Nokia Beta Labs directly on your mobile or on your PC (and then transfer it to your phone).
