Skyfire to Follow Opera with iPhone Browser
Apparently Opera Software’s success at getting their Opera Mini for iPhone into the iPhone App Store has inspired the team behind mobile browser Skyfire to congratulate Apple and Opera in a blog post and also talks about their own development for the iPhone platform reports an article over on pocket-lint.
According to the Skyfire blog post, “Everyone at Skyfire was heartened by this decision by Apple, to open up their platform and believe this sets a solid precedent for additional innovation in mobile browsing from other companies. Skyfire believes this approval is a solid first step and there’s still major consumer demand for great rich media and video browsing on these devices”.
They did of course halt before confirming that the Skyfire mobile browser will at some point come to the iPhone but did say…”The Skyfire team has been watching the Opera submission and the iPhone/iPad market closely, and this will certainly accelerate our strategy on iDevices. Nothing to announce now, but stay tuned for news”.
So it does appear that they are at least looking ahead to possibly taking the same route as Opera Mini for iPhone, although just when that may happen is still a mystery, but who knows, Opera’s success may lead to others breaking into the App Store.
