 While I am not at the DEMO conference in Indian Wells, Calif., I am present virtually.

Among the many interesting new product announcements I have received concerns a new mobile browser from a company called

Skyfire.

Skyfire's announcement at DEMO is not an indication of immediate product availability, but of an emergence out of stealth mode. As such, a sign up for a future private beta is now available on the Skyfire site.

This mobile browser's main upside is enough heft to be able to handle some of the advanced scripting that even some other powerful mobile browsers cannot. We are talking dynamic Flash, advanced Ajax, Java and more.

With this support, it is possible to watch actual YouTube videos, as well as use the full feature PC versions of MySpace and Facebook.

This free app will work on your Windows Mobile-powered phone. Skyfire will also be seeking mobile deals. I will be rooting for them as they do.
