Web browsing in your pocket

At the conference Nokia also unveiled a new web browser for its S60 software for smartphones. The browser, designed to give equal access both to full web pages and mobile-optimized content, is available for S60 licensees as part of the S60 3rd Edition offering. With the browser built on open architecture, S60 licensees and open source developers will be able to extend its core and build new features on top of it.



In keeping with this open source approach, Nokia has also launched a new Internet portal for its open source software projects: opensource.nokia.com. The portal, a natural extension for the Forum Nokia online developer community, consolidates Nokia's open source activities and provides access to its projects.



A while back Nokia announced they were going to use Webkit to make their phone browser... this should be the one!



PS: The N80 looks swwwweeeeeeeeeeeet (slider phone with WiFi! muahahaha)

    This is what their site says (not Nokia, just series60):

    The new Web Browser for S60 enables full Web browsing experience on mobile devices. The browser is based on the WebCore and JavaScriptCore open source components that are used by Apple?s Safari Internet browser. These components are based on KDE?s Konqueror open source project.
