| October 31, 2011 | 29 Replies

To coincide with this tip from Glenn about eBuddy, here’s a video we got during Nokia World. Unfortunately, it seems to have cut off just before we got to see it working on other Nokia devices:

eBuddy XMS coming to MeeGo, its not WhatsApp, but its good enough allowing web SMS’s to be sent.


Clients are also available for iOS, Android and Blackberry.

Will also be coming to S40, Symbian and WP7

    eBuddy XMS replacing WhatsApp?? I remember Nokia pushing WhatsApp in its promotions as the preferred Messaging service..

  2. Nabeel says:

    I want whatsapp. I made everyone at work download it on iOS and blackberries, now I switched phones. Can’t make them download ebuddy. Common whatsapp. Oh btw, I emailed support for whatsapp and I got an automated reply that they have no plans for meego :(

    Anyone know of release date?

  4. Jill says:

    Interesting !!
    Considering its still not available for Symbian 3, Anna or Belle .. Was this the reason .. A fulfledged extra ordinary version ??

  5. Sfu says:

    So how does it work. he talks about being able to see is someon is online or offline.

    Do you have to log in?
    is it always on like whatsapp?
    does it drain battery?

    Would love it if it works like whatsapp. Just download. log in once and thats it.

  6. Sfu says:

  11. jr89 says:

    Is it a replacement for Whatsapp? At the end I did not used it a lot of time but ebuddy is an other thing I’ll definitely support!

  12. Glavata says:

    Where can I get this on my N9? Not showing up in the store.

  13. aboodesta says:

    This is awesome news for us N9 owners. I promoted whatsapp to everyone of my friends and then they give us the whole no plans for meego attitude. Im gonna make everyone I know switch to ebuddy xms now.

  14. gen says:

    N9 got facebook chat already. your pretty much online on your facebook as long as your phone is on.

    • Michael Faro-Tusino says:

      If you set your status as online and have an active internet connection.

    • kaien says:

      The problem with facebook chat or whatever protocol they currently supported doesn’t utilise push notification system and keeps the connection alive which drains my battery a lot. I switched those services off now. So ebuddy would be more reliable coz I believe they should use push notification.

  15. Colin says:

    How should this help us? Everyone has whatsapp.. and now just because of one phone everyone else should change? would you download such a programm just because of one person? =(
