Nokia Funding Minimo

Friday June 18th, 2004

CNET News.com is reporting that Nokia is funding Minimo. The Minimo project aims to build a version of Mozilla that can run on small devices such as mobile phones and PDAs. Nokia began funding development last year but has not yet shipped any Minimo-powered phones, with most of the company's lineup currently using Opera's smartphone browser.

Nokia are probably trying to pressure Opera by this move. From the design of Opera (on the PC platform) since version 3.2, I would be surprised to find anything that comes close. Minimo will have a long way to go. It is, however, a nice move at least for the Mozilla Foundation. I only hope that will not cause significant harm to decent software companies (as Opera).
