    Minimo was so clunky, slow and quite buggy on my WM6 phone... if the new browser addresses these issues I'll be happy. Pocket IE is terrible (but works quite reliably), which leaves Opera as the only viable alternative...

    Meh...great if you've got a fast PDA style phone, but for the time being I'll stick with Opera Mobile - runs fine on a SE K800i.

    wonder if they're going to just go with a normal type browser or one of the zoomy ones like safari on the iphone and the Deepfish browser MS are working on

    Deepfish hasn't been updated for yonks...either MS are prepping a new IE for WM7 when it comes out next year or they've dropped the project completely. Opera Mobile is a pretty decent browser, it just requires me to go to the Midlets group first before opening it, making it a lot more hassle to get to.

    Boy is there a need for a decent mobile browser, I doubt this generation of 'smartphones' will see one though (although safari on the iphone looks good apart from having no flash support)

    One thing needs verifying here:

    does it need a device with 64mb ram or actually need 64 mb ram?
    i'm 90% sure it's the former, which would count for pretty much every current device :)

    As a very heavy user of web-browsing on PDAs i'm looking forward to this...

    In my personal opinion for current WM devices:
    IE: fastest, but by far the most feature-bare browser (you want to do such things as 'save file/link as'? pfft! no chance)
    Minimo: technically better, as it renders pages much better than IE but 4x as slow and takes insane amounts of RAM (about 40% of the available on my MDA)
    opera: for some reason has never worked on any of my PDAs o_O
