VoIP and chat: is fring still on top? Nimbuzz has grown up, Talkonaut killed some bugs

Nimbuzz SIP VoIP chat instant messaging messenger
In the mobile world of instant messaging and VoIP calls, fring is the best program for your Symbian phone, right? Well, maybe, but the competition doesn't sleep. Nimbuzz has turned into a pretty good program for Skype and other VoIP services. If Nimbuzz improves its user interface, they may even score high in the instant messaging department.

Nimbuzz lets you chat and call on Skype, and does voice calls with almost every VoIP service that handles standard SIP calls. Just like fring does.

Of course Nimbuzz connects to AIM, GoogleTalk, Jabber, MSN, and Yahoo, just like many other multi-network mobile instant messenger applications. Not just for chatting, but for file transfers and voice chats too.

Talkonaut does more or less the same as fring and Nimbuzz. Make that less the same, because Talkonaut lacks Skype. The latest version of Talkonaut has a few less bugs than before. But with a combination of Nimbuzz and fring you don't really need Talkonaut.
