P2P Goes Mobile with Symella/SymTorrent

Researchers at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics have released two awesome P2P clients for cell phones. The two apps are surprisingly full featured.

Symella is a Gnutella client for Symbian smartphones.
It is capable of searching and downloading, but do not upload any data in its current release. It supports multi-threaded downloads which means that if multiple users have a particular file then Symella can download the file from several locations simultenously.
Another option is SymTorrent, which is a Bittorrent client for Symbian phones.
It supports downloading multiple torrent files at the same time, is capable of both downloading and uploading and can save the status of your unfinished torrents, so you can resume the downloads after restarting the application. You can also check the status of each file inside a torrent along with several other statistics and properties during download.
With the release of more MP3 cell phones, this could really take off.
