New Browser Approved By CDMA Carriers
Jun 8, 2006, 1:08 PM by (staff)
The browser that is in 70% of Korean phones has recently been approved for use on Sprint and Verizon networks. Embider is an extensible browser that manufacturers and carriers can choose to configure as they like. At its base level the browser simply does WAP. However modules can be added for HTML rendering and even DOM and CSS2 - possibly making the browser compatible with the new DIAL standards. Embider can also be configured with a Java engine or other application environment to run applets right in a web page. Since it now has approval from both CDMA carriers, this browser could soon replace Openwave and Netfront on new phones. Korean manufacturers are already using it in the majority of their domestic handsets, and using it in US handsets would mean one less thing they have to change before readying a model for sale in the US.

Is this just like an opera browser for cdma
Here's a brilliant idea...
I hope verizon allows it to support html
I do understand it must be difficult, given the limited bandwith and memory phones had, but it still is bad.
I have a bad feeling that they won't. It would give consumers access to unlimited web for $15/ month. Only time will tell, but I've been waiting for something to replace my openwave browser for sometime.
