It works well with proper VGA support. Unfortuanately I do not understand Japanese, and the font is all squares in any case, but having used netfront 3.1 before I know the menu structure, and can use some of the facilites. I look forward to the English release and hope the release is not very much delayed.

And hopefully it won't cost another $30 for an upgrade. :roll:

Yes, i'll be most annoyed if I have to pay to go from 3.2 to 3.3 if this comes out soon...

Agreed... 3.2 was a waste of money for me -- 3.1 was working "well enough" -- I expected more from the 3.2 upgrade...

I am anxiously waiting for Opera for the Pocket PC. Although I fail to see the advantages on the desktop over Firefox, I think if the low overhead can carry over to the handheld, it will be great.

Now that's what I'm talking about (whatever it says):

■ VGA液晶対応
Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition software for Pocket PCにおいて、VGA液晶での表示に正式対応。

As long as I see the 3 letter Veee Geee Ayyy. That's all I need to know. Anxiously awaiting... 0X

I'd love to see some of these apps begin to support WM 5.0 and its one handed smartphone-style navigation. Wonder if Netfront is going to get on board.

No. As far as I'm aware, it was a feature introduced in the v3.3 engine.
