Porting to the Symbian operating system is also planned. The first version of the mobile software telephone offers all the usual telephony functions, an address book with direct dialing, lists of dialed numbers and missed calls as well as personalized ring tones. A server-based address book, a simple chat option, and a facility for creating and managing buddy lists will be added shortly.

In a CeBIT showcase, Nero will demonstrate the possibility of GSM/WLAN roaming using Nero Sipps Mobile.
