The web on your phone with Skyfire

The only mobile browser to support all Web 2.0 technologies including full Flash, Ajax,
Quicktime and more, Skyfire has been bringing the full PC Web to US mobile users on the go
since launching in February of 2008. Now with Skyfire, Canadians will be able to access
the exact same Web that they usually see from a desktop right on their Windows Mobile
or Symbian S60 Smartphones.

With Skyfire, Canadians can fully experience some of the country’s most popular sites, like CBC, (www.cbc.ca), Facebook (www.facebook.com), NHL (www.nhl.com) or even YouTube (www.ca.youtube.com).

“Skyfire users love being able to browse media rich sites like MySpace, Facebook, YouTube, and ESPN,” said CMO Adam Sexton, “Our users prove that with Skyfire, mobile web browsing is very similar to PC Web browsing. We are pleased to bring Skyfire to Canada so that users there can use their mobile phones to visit sites that take
full advantage of everything Web 2.0 has to offer.”
