Default Skyfire Available to All for a Limited Time

"For a limited time only Skyfire, the only flash-enabled web browser for the Windows Mobile platform, is opening up to all comers. The browser, which now supports Silverlight, will now be accessible to all comers who use the special code 'Michael8', meaning Skyfire users can now watch all the streaming video from the Olympics. Skyfire says they did this to commemorate Michael Phelps’s monumental accomplishment of winning 8 Gold metals in a single Olympic games."



If you have been waiting to test out the new Skyfire web browser but have not been able to get into the Beta testing, now is your chance. From now until August 30th 2008 Skyfire will be available to all users who use the special code "Michael8". To sign-up to use the only Flash enabled web browser available for Windows Mobile visit Skyfire's website here.

Default Caution - T-Mobile PROXY Server usage

If you are using the WAP ($5-6) internet data service you are using a proxy server. This BETA does NOT support proxy server usage. If your Smart Phone has WiFi access option, that will work with this BETA.

Beta 2 has not started yet, and we do not have an estimated start date to offer you at this stage.

I highly doubt ANY information on their site.
