After yonks struggling along using Internet Explorer Mobile, I finally ‘bit the bullet’ and bought Opera Mobile which is US$24. Why? Functionality is why.
For simple surfing… *very* simple surfing… IEM is just about adequate. For anything else it is worse than useless. Quite often it’s actually obstructive!
The main selling point for Opera Mobile is that it renders web pages properly even when viewed on a PDA.
The advantage for me is that web forms are displayed properly which allows me for example to write Blog posts from anywhere the phone can receive a signal.
Now I just need some sort of FTP progam to let me send photos ‘on the fly’ and I’ll be set… for now at least. 🙂
