Can I use Bitcoin on my Nokia N97 phone which uses Symbian OS?

I cannot find any Bitcoin wallet applications on Ovi store :-(

I have found a wallet client for the Android operating system but that is hard to install on my N97.

I'm willing to compile a client from sources, but I can't find any. I've tried SourceForge but to no avail. Any suggestions?

  • Is there a client for Symbian? No. Could you cross-compile one? Very unlikely; the Android SDK has commands written for Android. What do you mean, "hard to install"? Can you install it? – BinaryMage Mar 28 '12 at 22:11
  • According to this androidforums.com/other-phones-android-non-android/… attempting a cross-compile of Android to an N97 is a non-starter. – Gary Rowe Mar 29 '12 at 7:50

CuteCoin might help

There is a project in GitHub that apparently provides a Symbian3 Bitcoin client using InstaWallet. See https://github.com/Matoking/cuteCoin for source code.

There is also some supporting discussion about Symbian on the forums here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=26154.0

Any suggestions?

Use a web client, such as MyWallet or StrongCoin.
