Skyfire browser for Windows Mobile is game changing, does Flash


The Skyfire browser is set to finally bring PC-like browsing to your Windows Mobile device with crazy speeds and support for all manner of embedded content. Sure, there are ways to get Youtube and other mobile video content through proxy sites that convert on the go or with other 3rd-party applications, but this puppy does it all in one sweet and free package. Facebook and Myspace pages load up in no time, video plays in the browser, and all of this is accomplished with some server side magic on the part of the Skyfire server but is completely transparent to the user. All flavors of Windows Mobile -- 5 and 6 for both touchscreen and not -- are supported with the roadmap hinting at Symbian support in the near future. Sounds too good to be true? It is, and you don't have to just take our word for it, follow the read link to get signed up for the beta, this is something that just cannot be missed.

Update: Check the video of it in action after the break.

Sean Cooper's been abusing tech toys since he first figured out how a screwdriver works, but only truly got lost in the mobile space when he tethered his first CDMA Nokia set to an HP Jornada. Unfortunately, Sean's quest for the ultimate mobile toy is an unwinnable game which all but guarantees him a lifetime of sore fingers, outrageous cell bills, and an ever-growing pile of retired handsets. When not playing with any one of a dozen current sets he's busily planning his children's Formula 1 careers, sipping coffee, and just generally enjoying life in Ottawa, Canada.
