Ambassador Spotlight

July 28th, 2009

nimbuzz-ambassadors-july

Our Ambassadors love to help us test all our beta releases each month and we are really happy to see that they are really active. Now let’s put them in the Spotlight so everybody can meet the guys that help us make Nimbuzz better.

This month they share what are the 3 features they would add to Nimbuzz and why.

Leila, from England, who runs Nimbuzz on her iPhone, Blackberry and Web says: “The obvious choice for me would be to have Twitter integration. I am a “twitaholic”, with over 10,000 tweets in just over a year, so this would make things so much easier for me.

How students can save money traveling across the world

July 23rd, 2009

Stay Connected

Yey!!!  July is here and for most of the students that means that it’s time for a study-break :D .

While some of you already packed your bags, got a map and bought tickets for a nice trip across the world, others might go abroad for an internship or for a Work and Travel experience.  Or maybe you just made plans to visit a long lost relative in the Never-Never Land or at least you have a friend who might do that.

Well, I would like to tell you how you can save your money for more important things like beer fruit juice, while abroad: Using Nimbuzz.

Staying in touch with our friends and family it’s really important but the roaming fees, for a traveling student with a fixed budget, are kind of expensive.  Also taking your laptop with you just to be available online for your friends is not an option when you DEFINITELY need that extra pair of sun glasses :D !

So how exactly can Nimbuzz save you money?

Toshiba TG01 launches in Italy with Nimbuzz

July 14th, 2009

Nimbuzz on TG01

After being launched in Germany, 2 weeks ago, the Toshiba TG01 handset continues its European launch and is now available in Italy with Nimbuzz pre-installed from Euronics.

That sounds like good news for the 47 million mobile users in Italy, and especially for the 25.9% that are already mobile media users (ComScore). The Italian owners of the new TG01 will be able to connect and interact with all of their friends from the most popular Social Networks and Instant Messaging communities with just one touch from the main screen.  Our partnership with Giovani.it adds even more local social appeal to the Toshiba TG01‘s launch in Italy, since Giovani.it‘s  users can connect directly with friends using Nimbuzz on the Giovani.it’s website.

By being pre-installed on the handset,  we aim to simplify and enhance  the daily “hyper-connected” lifestyle of the TG01 mobile user.

Curious how Nimbuzz runs on the Windows Mobile O.S.? Watch the video below:
