Microsoft deep sixes Deepfish mobile browser

I just wrote about web browser alternatives for Windows Mobile devices and then I read over at Pocket PC Thoughts that the Microsoft Deepfish web browser preview project has been cancelled. You can read all about it on the Deepfish website. If you are using it on your device now be aware that the service will be discontinued on September 31, 2008. (Wait a second Microsoft, there are only 30 days in September so are you saying that Deepfish will never be discontinued now?)

Microsoft deep sixes the Deepfish mobile browser preview project

Microsoft Live Labs folks state that the intent was to show there was a need for a better browsing experience back when the project was started in 2006 and as you can see by all the available Windows Mobile browsers I think this need has been clearly shown today. Maybe we'll see pieces of it end up in the Windows Mobile 7 OS we have heard so many rumors about. If not, there are plenty of alternatives and also alternative mobile operating systems with outstanding web browsers.
