Update:Skyfire for the Nokia 5800 and all S60 5th Ed Touchscreen Devices was released officially: Skyfire 5800
Here at the Nokia Mobile Blog we are big fans of Skyfire, it is probably the best and most useful application out there for Symbian Devices. If you did not know, Skyfire is a web browser that can load any web site with videos, music and everything just by installing a free app that you can get by going to ”get.skyfire.com” on your phone’s browser.
But the news here, are that Skyfire does work on the Nokia 5800, what the headline did not say is that you will need a bluetooth keyboard for it to work. The problem is that apparently Skyfire does not support at all the touch screen of the 5800, so without the keys of a Bluetooth keyboard you won’t be able to use Skyfire at all. To explain this better, I did a short video testing the Skyfire browser on the 5800.
What I can say, is that Skyfire works very well on the 5800, only problem is the touch input that does not work at all. It would be very nice if Skyfire starts working on the touch version of Skyfire, there are millions of 5800’s out there, the touch screen Nokia 5530 is just around the corner, and the N97 is going to be a hit, so why not?
