Just an FYI, the iPhone isn’t the only phone capable of viewing “real” websites. The Nokia N95 (and other Symbian S60 Series 3 (?) devices) has a browser based on Apple’s WebCore technology, the same technology used in Safari. Click here for a good article with an overview of the S60 browser. I’m a new N95 user, so I don’t know much behind all the history, but all the raving about the S60 browser was a main factor that eventually led me to buy an N-series device. I’m still learning about the N95, but so far I’m loving it.
Anyway, Sumocat’s latest post inspired me to take a couple pictures of the N95’s browser in action:
Not only did the N95’s browser handle the drop down menu as shown here, but it also showed the pop-up Snap thumbnail previews of the sites listed in the menu when I “hovered” the cursor over a site link. I was pleasantly surprised!
The N95’s browser isn’t perfect (had some out-of-memory issues when I tried reloading the image-heavy site), but it’s so much better (IMO) than IE on Windows Mobile (bleh!). More about my newbie experiences with the N95 and Symbian S60 OS later.
