Skyfire BlackBerry client official announcement this summer

Comments

Skyfire has released their 1.0 version for Windows Mobile and Symbian, and they’re one step closer to a BlackBerry beta. The BlackBerry alpha is officially acknowledged in their press release, and the only official word from Skyfire is that they “will have an announcement this summer.”

If you have a WinMo or Symbian phone, you can get an idea of what the BlackBerry client will be like by downloading it from get.skyfire.com.

Over one million consumers have installed and used the Skyfire browser in just under five months, making it the fastest growing downloadable mobile browser in North America.

So far, the official line from Skyfire is vague but promising:

Skyfire has plans to bring their browser to more smartphones and recently launched a Private Closed Alpha program for the BlackBerry platform. The company will announce plans for a Public BlackBerry Beta at a later date.

This step will offer an approximate twenty-one million BlackBerry users the opportunity to finally be able to access the PC web on their phone.

Skyfire is going to be an incredible browser for BlackBerry. With full Flash, Silverlight and Ajax support, you can browse the Internet like you’ve always wanted to on your device. The latest build, Alpha 2, has been delivered to testers meaning it shouldn’t be long until the public gets their hands on something official. Expect a public Beta this summer. Sorry, I wish I could give you a more exact date.

skyfire for blackberry

We told you a few days ago that Skyfire was soon to be arriving on BlackBerry and BGR has confirmed this with screenshots of the browser in action. How amazing will it be to have full flash support on your BlackBerry with the ability to stream video from sites such as Hulu? Very amazing.

One user who has alpha tested the browser describes it as “already being the best BlackBerry browser ever.”

(Rumor) Skyfire mobile browser to hit BlackBerry very soon

19 Comments

Back at CTIA last year we posted about Skyfire, a mobile web browser that is really slick. The browser supports Ajax, Flash, Silverlight and it runs faster than Opera and Safari Mobile. When we posted about it, readers weren’t very happy with us because it wasn’t BlackBerry compatible.

According to a LinkedIn thread, they are very close to offering BlackBerry compatibility.

Skyfire has just begun the alpha test for Blackberry devices. In a first moment this will cover Bold, Curve, Pearl and the 8830.

We should expect to see a press release about Skyfire for BlackBerry very soon so get ready.

Here’s a quick video of Syfire’s mobile web browser from their session earlier today. The video quality is poor, but man does that thing look great! Supports ajax, flash, silverlight, runs faster than opera and safari mobile and it’s only in beta. Did I mention it’s free? We’re talking with Skyfire later this week so expect more info to come.
