Impressive in its own right, these statistics do nothing if not remind us that there is a whole mobile community outside of Europe and North America.

There have been a number of complaints regarding the browser and its ease of use. However, the application is still in beta and according to company sources, there will be a number of updates address the communities concerns. A WinMo version is set for release sometime in the ‘near future’. You might as well try the application out because it is free; if you don’t like it, delete it with no harm done!
