Researchers at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics have developed a Gnutella application for Symbian smartphones called Symella. From the website:

"Symella supports multi-threaded downloads which means that if multiple users have a particular file then Symella can download the file from several locations simultenously."


Symella 1.32 was released on October 30th. The application runs on devices based on the S60 platform. It doesn't support uploading of content yet, and there is no word on the effect on the phone's battery.

Here are a couple of screenshots from the Symella website:

Symella is Open Source and released under the GNU GPL.
