The Opera Mini has been approved for the iPhone and iPod touch and is now available for download from Apple's App Store. I've taken the browser for a test drive, and so far I have to say that it's good!
The German government has issued a stern warning to web surfers telling them not to use Firefox because the browser contains a critical security vulnerability.
It seems that Nokia kicked over the hornet's nest back in October when they sued Apple for infringing on patents that they claim others have been legitimately paying for while Apple has been refusing to pay for. Not surprisingly, Apple then sued Nokia for infringing on their patents. We then recently saw a rather stupid request from Nokia to have Apple iPhone, iPod, and Mac computers banned from being imported. Of course, the latest filing from Apple asking the US government to ban Nokia phone imports is the expected retaliation we have come to expect from these two.
I understand the core of the Zune HD browser is not webkit, but some kind of Internet Explorer base. That said, it was natural to want to compare the Zune HD web browser to the latest mobile browser from Microsoft, IE 6 Mobile, that is found in the T-Mobile Touch Pro2 and will be present in Windows Mobile 6.5 when it is released in October. I don't expect my media player to browse the web, but since Apple supports this with the iPod touch it is expected that other high end models do the same. Unfortunately, the Zune HD browser is not going to compete with the iPod touch Safari browser or even the latest Windows Mobile default browser, but at least it is very quick.
Pound for pound the best value for a machine running Mac OS X right now is the Dell Vostro A90 netbook -- which is on sale for $199. That's right, for less than the price of an iPod touch you can buy a machine that runs desktop-class Mac OS applications and a Web-browser with Flash.

Rumor has it over at TechCrunch that Apple is working on some type of search engine.If you think about it, the idea is not so far-fetched: Apple's Safari browser has 6-7% market share and currently uses Google exclusively as the search engine for both the standard and mobile versions on the iPhone and iPod.
It seems that the engineers at Opera developed a version of Opera Mini that would run on the iPhone (and the iPod touch), but this browser will never see light of day because Apple rejected it from the App Store.
There was a lot of Intel MID (Mobile Internet Device) news and demos at CES back in January, but we are just now starting to see them become available. Jenn from Pocketables posted that the Aigo P8860D/Gigabyte M528 MID is now shipping from Japan for US$699 with free worldwide shipping. The device has been on ebay, but this is the first official reseller carrying the device. I haven't read anywhere that other MID devices are coming soon with most speculation showing 2009 availability. With devices like the iPhone/iPod Touch and Nokia N810 I am not sure there is a real need for a device like these, but then again with Linux or Windows XP your browser experience should not be limited like it is on all of these existing handheld devices.
On this week's EIC squared podcast Dan and I talk Google's Chrome browser, Apple's iPod event next week and my theory that Dell and Salesforce.com should merge.
I recently mentioned that Pocket Express released an iPhone-optimized site for traveler information. I guess it really does pour when it rains as Travelocity also just announced the availability of their iPhone and iPod Touch optimized mobile travel site. Simply point your Safari mobile browser to iphone.travelocity.com to access this new site.
Who says that iPhones are not for the business person? Certainly not Handmark as they just announced Pocket Express Travel for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Simply point your iPhone/iPod Touch Safari browser to www.pocketexpress.com and you will get FREE access to the Handmark travel services. I have used Pocket Express on Windows Mobile and Palm devices in the past and it is great to see an iPhone-optimized site with services for the traveler.
