Mobile Web Browser

June 16th, 2005

Nokia Series 60 – The new browser for Nokia’s Series 60 smart-phone software package is expected to debut in June. It will incorporate some of the same open-source technology–WebCore and JavaScriptCore–found in Apple’s Safari Web browser, which is based on KHTML and KJS from the open-source K Desktop Environment’s (KDE) Konquerer browser.

PocketPC – The current PocketIE does not support Javascript 1.4, DOM or CSS. The upcoming Windows Mobile 5.0 will change that. Minimo, i.e. MiniMozilla holds some hope for open source browser for PocketPC.

PalmOS – the PalmOne browser on the Treo 650 is decent.

Cross-platform – AvantGo is clearly the king of cross-platform web browser for PDA and smartphones. It currently supports PocketPC, Palm and Symbian UIQ.
