The New Wireless Browser War
Most people don’t think about their desktop browser anymore. Microsoft has won that war. But there is a whole new war for the smartphone market. Opera ,one of Microsoft’s desktop victims is placing its bets on the wireless market. They have a pretty cool smartphone browser that reformats web pages on the fly to fit on small smartphone screens. Hoping not to get run over by Microsoft again they have vowed never to release a version of their smartphone browser for Microsoft wireless products. This is great for the Symbian and Linux smartphone products which Opera does support. But will it really matter? MS will eventually replicate the functionality on Pocket Internet Explorer.
