Skyfire, the much hyped, proxy based, full-web mobile browser for Windows Mobile and Symbian S60 3rd edition devices is still in closed beta. That means that it is only available to a limited number of users and there is a waiting list. However according to MobileCrunch, SkyFire has opened the floodgates to all – but only for the next eight days.
You have until August 30th the signup at www.skyfire.com/sign-up and you need to enter Michael8 in the Beta Code field. The code is of course a reference to Michael Phelps’ eight Olympic medals. Skyfire supports Flash and Silverlight so you can actually watch the live Olympics videos on NBCOlympics.com with it.
I wonder if Skyfire really means open to “all” or only to US residents. Up to now the Skyfire Beta has required a US mobile number to complete the registration process. Anyone tried this from outside the US?
