The chrome2phone equivalent for Symbian has arrived in style ! It has been implemented through Nokia Drop which is already a great service to send links and wallpapers to phone.
This is what Drop usually does :
- Change your phone’s wallpaper
- Send image to your phone (Note: images are send as a link and will be downloaded to mobile via Nokia Drop application)
- Send URL to your favourite phone browser (ie. Nokia Browser or Opera Mobile)
- Send map view or send selected location from maps.nokia.com
- Send feeds to Nokia Reader or to native browser web feed
Now it supports this :
NEW: Install apps, wallpapers, themes, ringtones from Ovi Store without SMS
“Nokia Drop uses Push Notifications, so no cable or Bluetooth connection is needed.”
Just like Chrome2Phone right ? 🙂
Good to know that many trivial features like these are *still* coming for Symbian, hope everything is replicated to the next version of Windows Phone !
Check out the Video :
Available for all Symbian^3 users ( v1.3 )
Symbian^1 users can try this in v1.2 itself.

What you need
A network with WLAN access is needed as well as a DLNA capable playing device (e.g. TV, A/V amplifier, Blu-ray player or PS3 game console). All devices including mobile must be connected to the same network.
