SkyFire - this is the competition?

SkyFire is the hottest new thing for Windows Mobile Phones. The makers of this new 'real' browser for Windows Mobile phones are touting a new beta of the product. You can click the link above to go watch a video demo.
I laughed almost all the way through the whole video. This is obviously a direct result of the success of the 'real' Safari browser on the iPhone. They don't refer to this as their comparison however they refer to the Opera browser several times. Which I can understand. They are comparing oranges to oranges by comparing browsers on the Windows Mobile platform and not against a browser from another platform.
While you can load up 'real' web pages like Safari the SkyFire interface and experience look ugly and clumsy. I guess it is the best they can do with the limitations of the Windows Mobile platform.
I read the other day that the next version of Windows Mobile will include a version of the IE browser that will also be a 'real' browser. I can't wait to see that one in action!
That has a really good chance of giving me another belly laugh for a few minutes.
