Skyfire to Kill Windows Mobile and Symbian Products

Skyfire to Kill Windows Mobile and Symbian ProductsWith the decreasing popularity of Windows Mobile and Symbian platforms, Skyfire has decided to do some changes for its own eco system.

Starting from December 31, 2010, Skyfire will stop supporting its 1.0 browser for both Windows Mobile and Symbian devices.

What does that mean?
Flash and Silverlight is no more, as its proxy servers will be shut down.

Any solutions?
If you can’t live without such components, try Uzard (Beta) web browser.

We do expect to bring Skyfire 2.0 to additional platforms, and have begun discussions with some carriers and OEMs to decide which will be our next OS. Microsoft’s new Windows Phone 7 and Nokia’s MeeGo platform are both shaping up as platforms with a lot of potential and the recent launch of the new Blackberry OS 6 with a WebKit browser core makes for interesting potential for a future release of Skyfire 2.0.

Said Jeff Glueck, the CEO of Skyfire.

    Beginning of the end.

      Symbian is still market leader… (also I see it on a steady and not very likely to stop retreat)

      What strategy suggests dropping support for the market leader?

  • nvm

    It has begun. Didn’t I tell you Skyfire was in trouble?

    They are trying to spin this as a good thing. They are lying as they have always done.

    Skyfire is going out of business, unless they manage to get some gullible fool to buy a doomed company.

      Don’t they also generate revenue on search, like Opera Mini or pretty much any other browser?
