Will We Ever See A Skyfire Browser for Nokia?

While it’s nice to hear that Skyfire hired Mike Rowehl to improve their system scalability, they need a Symbian developer. Explains why I haven’t seen a Nokia version of their mobile browser as of yet, even though I was orignally told it was supposed to show up in Q1 of 2008. Makes me doubt whether or not they’ll get it out this summer, either.

I went ga-ga over Skyfire when I had a look at it earlier this year, but I think solutions like Skyfire have a limited lifespan. Phones will start having more and more power to render web pages directly, as the iPhone has shown us. I hope Skyfire is already working on their next big innovation.
