I had hands on experience with Opera Mobile 9.5 during Mobile World Congress and I have been using the beta for a while now. Unlike its predecessors, it is much faster and works great.

I also have been selected to beta test the Skyfire, which has amazing capabilities, such as Flash video support, rendering images and videos quickly and desktop like experience.

Another thing coming out is Windows Mobile 6.1, which has the improved Internet Explorer, including support for zoom.

Finally, Netfront 3.5 beta is also out, adding one more to the equation.

I need to create some time and seriously test these fully. All look very slick. I have recently got a HTC Touch Cruise and have been using WM 6.1 on it. Very nice unit. More on that on another post.

I’ll leave you with two demos, Opera and Skyfire
