Unfortunately for users of Skyfire on either Symbian and Windows Mobile devices. Skyfire will be stopping support and killing the servers on December 31st 2010.
Skyfire issued a press release this morning explain the reasons behind the move and what user can expect in the new version of the Skyfire 2.0 browser.
Skyfire 2.0 is the world’s first hybrid browser, using the best of the device’s native browser, and adding a cloud “booster engine” for extra features like video and social networking. It is our flagship go-forward product, as we’ve reported publicly for months, since our Android launch.
With that in mind, we are announcing that we will complete the phase out of our legacy v1.0 product on Windows Mobile and Symbian on December 31st, 2010 for remaining countries. This two-year old product used a “proxy browser” approach which is no longer our vision. It was a revolutionary product when introduced and offered for free, but the fast-moving mobile market has changed significantly since 2007, and as a small tech start-up, we need to keep innovating forward.
