Ooh Android and iPad news on Nokia video.

Ooh here’s a push-enabled RSS reader from Nokia Beta Labs. Push enabled services means 1) you receive your stuff instantly 2) your app isn’t actively pulling data all the time so conserves battery. Here’s the details from Beta Labs.


Looking for a simple and easy to use RSS reader to manage news feeds on your Symbian^3 or S60 5th Edition device? Reader pushes your favorite news feeds to your homescreen allowing you to quickly catch up on current events.

This useful application is easy to setup: Just select your favorite feeds from a pre-populated list of the major news sources or add a new feed by typing the website address and Reader will search for the RSS feed.

And thanks to push notifications, battery consumption is modest and content is always fresh.

Main Features:

  • Uses push notifications
  • Content directory
  • Homescreen widget
  • Supports Nokia Account

Supported devices

Nokia Reader is compatible with S60 5th Edition (excluding Nokia 5800 XpressMusic) and Symbian^3 devices. Nokia Reader has been tested to work with Nokia N97, Nokia N97 Mini, Nokia X6, Nokia N8 and Nokia C7.

Nokia Reader is an experimental service

Nokia Reader is under development and service breaks may occur. Nokia Reader is an experiment to verify push notifications functionality on Symbian. Try out Nokia Reader and share your opinion how well the service is working for you.
