Sprint today launched the OpenWeb solution from Openwave for Sprint phones. The new web solution is much more capable and will give users a closer-to-desktop browsing experience. Here is more info on today's announcement:
"As customers increasingly look to their wireless phones for their Internet 'on the go,' Sprint will continue its leadership in employing an open Internet model with the launch of an enhanced mobile Web browsing experience on virtually all Web-capable Sprint phones. As the first U.S. carrier to launch the OpenWeb solution from Openwave Systems, Sprint customers will be able to get faster, more user-friendly renderings of Internet sites, even those not optimized for the mobile device. This enhancement will be automatic for customers who currently access the Internet on their phones and will require no additional action on their part.
Each month, millions of Sprint customers visit Web sites using their mobile phones. With Openwave OpenWeb, these pages will automatically appear on data-enabled Sprint phones in an easy-to-read format that's closer to a desktop experience of the Internet, regardless of the memory or processing power of the device. The enhancement is designed to adapt the standard layout of a Web site and reconstruct it to properly fit the screen of the user's particular phone, providing automatic in-page navigation so users can reach the most important data from the Web site faster.
Available nationwide in the coming weeks, this enhancement follows Sprint's launch of a more user-friendly mobile search product, Microsoft's enhanced Live Search for mobile, in 2007. Sprint plans to launch additional mobile Web innovations in 2008 that will further enhance users' experience on their mobile device. To access the mobile Web, customers should click on the Web icon on their phone's main menu.
Sprint is committed to offering its customers an enhanced mobile Internet experience, along with mobile content and applications, when, where and how they want them:
-- Sprint has employed an open Internet approach since first
launching the Wireless Web on its phones in 2001.
-- Through relationships with third parties, dozens of non-Sprint
branded applications, games and other digital media operate on
the Sprint network.
-- Sprint will hold its eighth annual Application Developer
Conference later this year to provide third-party developers
with tools and resources for creating innovative products and
services for Sprint customers.
-- Sprint recently joined the Open Handset Alliance, along with
more than 30 other participating companies, to support the
free and open mobile applications platform named Android.
-- As part of the planned 2008 commercial availability of our
next-generation mobile data network, Xohm(SM), Sprint has
commitments from ecosystem partners for WiMAX network access
on new and innovative devices, including connection cards,
Internet tablets, ultramobile PCs and other consumer
