Monsoon, makers of the HAVA placeshifting line, announced they’ve got a Symbian S60 client in the pipeline. The free software is expected to enter beta by the end of June, shooting for a fall release. However, take the timing details with a grain of salt… as their Windows Mobile client has been in beta well over a year.
Being a placeshifting free agent these days, I tried applying to the beta but they’re not quite ready for applicants – my email inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org bounced.
S60 is a solid platform (I love my N95) and something Monsoon has to hit to be competitive with Sling’s mobile offerings, but Nokia’s Linux tablet (N800/N810) appeals to the geek in me on a much different level. So I’m especially interested in checking out that recently annouced flavor of HAVA client. I wasn’t able to track it down at CTIA, but we’ll see what I can do through PR channels.
