Video hands-on with Skyfire 1.5

Skyfire 1.5 has just been released. After the break, we take a look at the proxy-based browser (meaning the rendering work is done on Skyfire's end, saving your phone the trouble), which allows full Flash functionality, among other goodies. Join us!

  • Why are you talking through the music? When I visit a link that says: "Video hands-on with Skyfire 1.5" I'd like to hear music. Not someone talking.
  • ? I don't get how you would expect music? I would expect a hands on review and would be disappointed if it was just music
  • Right! So why this music? (I was trying to be sarcastic)
  • I agree I also would expect a hands on review. Phil, I installed this version and I love it. The only problem is I can't get it to change form portrait to landscape unless I use the slide out keyboard. Help!
  • Okay so while we're on the subject...where is the music from??
  • FYI on the screen rotate this is from Skyfire directly:
  • @anon 20:28 ... Hmmmmm. I didn't open the keyboard, so I'm not sure about that.
    @densbucs As I'm sure you're aware *wink*, that's the closing music from the podcast.
  • This only supports VGA...Shouldn't they actually be making to support WVGA considering thats the new standard for windows mobile 6.5 and the rumors standard resolution for winmo-7?
  • That is a WVGA screen on the video...
  • WO! Your screen is nice! And your clock. I have a Tilt 2 with WM 6.5. Looks the same as that phone. How come your menu and home screen look so sleek ? How do I get that? Thanks for the Skyfire video!
