Trash talking your competitors is nothing new (Apple and Adobe have been at it for a while, with Google joining in on occasion), but we've had an ugly spate of it this year - from Google derailing the Future of Search event by accusing Bing of copying (and Bing's Harry Shum drily snarking back by accusing Google of click fraud) to (notice a pattern?) Google pre-empting Nokia's deal with Microsoft by repeating a Nokia insult to Siemens and Benq.

One of the primary functions I perform on my smartphones is listening to podcasts, which I actually listen to much more than music. Nokia has an excellent Nokia Podcasting application that lets you subscribe and download podcasts with and the iPhone has iTunes integration so syncing podcasts over is fairly simple. There are a couple of 3rd party apps for Android, but I was very pleased to see Google launch their own podcatcher called Listen. Listen lets you search, subscribe, download, and stream podcasts to your Android-based device.
On my Nokia N95 there is a search plug-in on the standby screen that provides a shortcut to search on my device or via the internet. Previously, you had a choice between Windows Live Search or Yahoo Search. This week Nokia announced that Google search will be implemented in the future as well. The four new devices (the N96, N78, 6210 Navigator, and 6220 Classic) will have it integrated and eventually everyone will be able to download an update to the Nokia Search application.
Nokia announced a new enterprise focused smartphone today, the Nokia E51, that joins the E90, E61i, and E65 devices. The Nokia E51 looks like an update for the E50 device as it offers users a slim and stylish design for the business professional. The E51 includes integrated Bluetooth 2.0 and WiFi (for VoIP calling), a 2 megapixel camera, HSDPA, 130 MB of user accessible storage along with a microSD card slot, and S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1. It also includes software for the enterprise user, including the Nokia Office Tools 2.0 that includes Nokia Team Suite, In-device Search, Quickoffice, Macromedia PDF reader, Zip manager, File manager, and Active Notes.
The latest version of RoadSync, version 3.002, was just recently released and actually has more functionality than the Nokia Mail for Exchange client with support for Exchange Server 2007. RoadSync still works with Exchange Server 2003 too, but now takes advantage of some advanced features of 2007. Some of these advanced features are e-mail flags, faster message retrieval, online mailbox search, and SharePoint and UNC file access. Unfortunately, 4SmartPhone hasn't yet upgraded their servers to Exchange Server 2007 so I can't yet take advantage of these advance features. The latest version of RoadSync also adds features to Exchange 2003, including mailbox subfolders, message zooming, improved attachment handling, improved push logic, and support for S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1. Check out all the screenshots of RoadSync in action on a Nokia N95.
I LOVE desktop search tools like Google Desktop and Windows Desktop Search and remember talking with Microsoft about bringing this search functionality to mobile devices. Microsoft has a integrated search tool in Windows Mobile devices, but it has never been a very strong utility. I just read the Nokia press release announcing the release of Nokia Mobile Search that brings powerful search functionality from the desktop to the device. Nokia Mobile Search allows you to search emails, text messages, calendar entries, videos, music files, and more. Nokia Mobile Search indexes your compatible device for faster search results. I could not find any information on whether external storage flash cards or hard drives, like the 4 and 8 GB drives on N91 devices, are indexed. I would think this is where the real power of device search would be as storage cards get larger and larger in capacity with more and more files being stored on them.
Mobile search is finally getting the attention it deserves and I am pleased to see Nokia working with Microsoft. I will also be in NY next week where we may see a new Nseries device.
