iPad Skyfire’s Mobile Browser 2011
Apple fans with an iPad will soon have some more options when it comes to browser choice as it looks like the mobile browser Skyfire will be made available on the tablet.
You can see some of its features in the hands on video below. Like the other iOS version, the iPad version maintains all of the same core functionality such as the ability to transcode Flash video into the more acceptable Apple media format HTML5, thereby allowing users to watch Flash videos which would otherwise not be available on iOS.
Aside from this though, the iPad edition lets you see your Twitter, Facebook and Google Reader feeds. Seeing as there are dedicated apps for this already, I guess this is for those that can’t be bothered to use them. We should see the Skyfire browser available in the next week or so as a company spokesperson expects the browser to be available before Christmas for $5.
