Mobile Royale reports that Skyfire sent out a notice to the effect that their proxy-based browser will be focused on only Canada, United States and United Kingdom for now.
As such, they are cutting off the rest of the world. I have not been a big fan of Skyfire, but this is bad news for lots of mobile web users.
An excerpt from the mail reportedly sent by the Skyfire team:
As, of July 1st, 2010 Skyfire will no longer be providing service in your country for the windows mobile and symbian browser. In order to offer the best possible service level for our officially supported customers and countries , Skyfire is consolidating the countries in which it operates. We apologize for this inconvenience and hope you have enjoyed the Skyfire will work on your phone until July 1st 2010,at which time the service will be de-activated and your browser will no longer function.
