Skyfire Ending Support for Windows Mobile and Symbian
Skyfire announced recently that it plans to end support for devices running Windows Mobile 6.x and earlier as well as Symbian by the end of the year. The company is transitioning from what it calls its Skyfire 1.0 systems to a new hybrid cloud-based "booster engine" in its Skyfire 2.0 architecture. It will be shutting down the server farms used now to compress web sites and serve them to Windows Mobile and Symbian devices on December 31, 2010. Skyfire said that it is weighing which platforms to support movie forward, and notes that Nokia's MeeGo, RIM's BlackBerry 6, and Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 platform are all on the table for discussion. Skyfire will continue to support iOS and Android.

Palm, a California company that purchased the rights to the Palm brand from TCL, today launched a new device it calls an ultra-mobile product that "syncs with your smartphone to keep you connected but not consumed." The idea is to allow people to access their vital apps when needed, but keep them from staring at their screen all day — particularly when they are out and about.
HOWEVER: Skyfire's handling of this transition has been horrible.
First, despite what the report says, the WinMo server farms were turned offf almost two weeks ago, with no announcement until several days ago.
Second, Skyfire's response on their own forums has taken a haughty tone of "You didn't REALLY think we were going to support your PATHETIC OLD PHONE forever, DID YOU?"
