One photo shows Minimo on the Orange SPV E200, which runs Windows Mobile 2003 for Smartphone, while the other shows the browser on the i-mate JAM, which runs the slightly overnamed Windows Mobile 2003 for Pocket PC Second Edition, Phone Edition. More details about the Windows CE version of Minimo were posted last month."</i><br /><br /><img src="http://www.smartphonethoughts.com/images/Temporale-20050308-MinimoBrowser.jpg" alt="User submitted image" title="User submitted image"/> <br /><br />Pocket IE is no longer a must have on the Smartphone platform. We've had Opera for a number of months already and now we can add baby Mozilla - Minimo. If you're interested in giving this a try, you can download the latest build from <a href="http://www.mozillazine.org/talkback.html?article=6097">here.</a> Just remember that this is an early beta and could cause harm to your device. :wink:

You mean more harm than Activesync?

Sorry, I couldnt' resist.

Actually, I'm probably gonna play around with this later. I use Firefox exclusively now, and the idea that I can maybe, just maybe, have a better portable experience is definitely intriguing. PIE is weak, and there's no incentive to bump it up, and while a third party browser may not provide that incentive, at least it'll give users a choice.

as I posted also to the post on PPC Thoughts about this, try Opera :-) a public technical preview has been out for months and it's awesome.

Check out this photo. (http://www.flickr.com/photos/91116329@N00/6138807/in/set-153327/)

It seems that Minimo has a new twist on the scroll bars. I do not see the vertical scroll bar. Instead it seems there are two scroll bars at the bottom of the screen. :? Wonder if the top one is for horizontal and the lower most one is for vertical.

Will have to check out the beta.

I don't think there is a Smartphone 2003 build. Or maybe I could not find it. :cry:

Tried to see the build instructions. I could not decipher them. :oops:
