Is 5530 OS different to 5800 OS

My colleague has just bought a 5530 after seeing my 5800 but cant get apps for it especially BBC iPlayer

Google "5530 iplayer". Lots of results on page 1 which should help.

You think I didn't do that already? Why do you think I posted the question on a specialist board.
But Thanks

Sorry, Nitro. I saw you had no punctuation and the question was a bit short so I figured that, no, you hadn't spent time looking at the google results. Apologies if you had. No offence intended. I thought the (google page1) thread with links to 5530-compatible versions of iplayer looked helpful..

You should maybe point your colleague to the ovi store. They can select 5530 and they'll see a page or two of apps, or just select 5800 and most of them'll work fine (according to google). Apologies if you've already done this!

Can't comment specifically on the 5530, but I've got a bunch of 5800 apps on my 5230. Most apps written for the 5800 or N97 will likely run on the 5230 and 5530 - they're all the same core OS, same processors, etc. Just slight functional differences in the presentation layer/UI.
